Weather Talk: Hottest weather in our area concentrated in July, AugustWhen the temperature in Fargo-Moorhead reached 92 degrees on July 4, it was only the second day in 2013 with a high in the 90s. The first was on May 13.
It never got to 90 degrees in June, mostly because the weather was so busy raining. This is actually about the average for 90-degree days during the early part of summer. On average, through the end of June, there will have been about two days of 90 degrees or higher. This year, we had one.
The average number of 90-degree days during a year is 13: about one in May, one in June and five or six in both July and August.
Once in a while, we will get a rogue 90-degree day in September or early October just as once in a while we will get one in April. But the hot weather in our region is concentrated in July and August.
