This is the 139th April for which there is a temperature record for Fargo-Moorhead. In those 139 Aprils, the temperature has reached 90 degrees or higher only 12 times, most recently in 2004.
Only once, in 1980, has there been two days in the same April at 90 degrees or higher. That spring, it was 94 degrees April 20 and then the following day, which is today's date, it hit 100. This is the only time on record it has been 100 degrees here in April.
Eighty-degree weather in April comes a little easier, with an average of one day and a record of five days which has happened four times, most recently in 1987.
Last spring, despite a cold and snowy first half of April, warmer weather did arrive and on April 30, the high temperature reached 81 degrees.
