The Canadian High pressure center shifts into the United States throughout the year and has a major impact on the weather from season to season. In the summer when this high pressure moves in, the temps usually cool off by about 10-15 degrees. For example:  if the temp was 91F in Fargo, it would cool down into the 70s once this high moved in. The high also creates drier weather. In winter when this system moves in the weather pattern is the same in that the temps will drop and the air...
