2. Impossible to say.

 

Ever increasing climatic energy can and has certainly resulted in major temperature anomalies, but a given weather anomaly is not necessarily the result of that energy. Considering that it's still winter, and N. Dakota is, well, 'North', -16 F isn't really out of the park.
