Weather Talk: Peak of summer season begins now in the regionThis is it. We are at the beginning of the peak period of our brief northern summer. The weather in and around Fargo-Moorhead is more apt to be sunny and warm from the end of the first week of July through the middle of August or, roughly, from today through the next five weeks.
This same period also brings fewer minutes of rain and what rain we do get tends to come from thunderstorms instead of steady rains. Other weather elements associated with summer also peak at this time including the year’s highest dew points and warmest nights.
If the temperature is going to get to 100 degrees, it is most likely to during these five weeks. Interestingly, these next five weeks also bring the lowest average wind speeds of the year. It is truly a time of the year when the weather makes it easy to take things slowly and relax a little.
