Warm Weekend

Temperatures are expected to be on the warm side the next few days, but high heat is unlikely and has rarely occurred this time of year.   Since records began in 1881, the official high temperature in Fargo Moorhead has reached 100 degrees or higher only twice in May and nine times in the month of June.  The last 100 degree high this time of year was on June 17, 1995.  That particular 100 degree day was the first one in June since 1933.  Therefore, really hot weather this time of year has not occurred since the 1930s.  Granted, there was a 100° day in April, 1980, but May and Junes have recorded few extremely warm days in the past 80 years.
