Estherville Weather & Climate

Northwest Iowa lies in the humid continental zone and has four distinct seasons. Nearly three-fourths of the annual precipitation is received April through September. Severe thunderstorms are possible during this time. However, this northwest section is drier in summer and colder in the winter than the southern regions of the state. Seasonal snowfall statewide is 32 inches and varies from 40 inches in the northeast to 20 inches in the extreme southeast corner of the state. Blizzards are not uncommon and summertime tornadoes are possible. January and February are generally the coldest months. Hot dry winds, originating in the desert southwest, occasionally reach Iowa in the summer, producing unusually high temperatures. Autumn "Indian Summers" are a result of the dominance of air masses moving across the U.S. from the Pacific Ocean.
