Weather Talk: High temp in F-M has been below normal for 2 monthsThe high temperature in Fargo-Moorhead has been consistently below average now for two months. There were a few of days in March when the high temperature was near average, but otherwise the entire month recorded below-normal high temperatures.
Some cloudy mornings kept the low temperature well above average on at least a handful of days during this stretch, meaning the overall average daily temperature was slightly above normal on at least a few occasions. But besides a few afternoons in the middle of February, you would have to go back to the early and middle part of January to find a consistent period when this area has recorded several days in a row with a high temperature above average.
A period like this is very common in our climate. We can often go months with temperatures well below or well above normal. Of course last year it was generally above average for long stretches, but when you live in an already cold climate, the cold periods tend to be more noticeable.
