Weather Talk: F-M's below-zero season quickly coming to an end

We are quickly coming to the end of what I referred to as our below-zero season. Our long-term average last day of the season with a temperature below zero is March 9 and the average for the past 30 years has been even earlier - March 3.

We are quickly coming to the end of what I referred to as our below-zero season. Our long-term average last day of the season with a temperature below zero is March 9 and the average for the past 30 years has been even earlier - March 3.

Below-zero morning temperatures have occurred as late as early April, yet the odds are high that any additional below-zero readings we will get this season will likely occur in the next two or three weeks.

At this point, Fargo-Moorhead has recorded just 13 days below zero so far this winter. The record for the fewest negative days in a season since 1881, was 14 such days during the winter of 1986-87. The winter of 1930-31 is currently in second place with 15 below-zero mornings recorded that cold season.

It is no coincidence that those two winters are currently ranked as the two warmest on record. The additional snow expected today and this week may yet bring a few more negative mornings to the area.
