Our short summers give us little time to acclimate to sticky weather. So if you find yourself complaining about the humidity, you are entitled.

But this summer, there has been as much hot air coming from the mouths of the complainers as from the weather, itself.

Only four days have reached 90 degrees this summer, one in June and three in July.

It will take a serious stretch of hot weather in order for Fargo Moorhead even to achieve its average of 13 days at or above 90.

The average temperatures in June and July have been marginally above the long term average due mostly to slightly above average nighttime temperatures.

But, again, there has been very little in the way of truly high humidity. Overnight lows have been mostly in the 60s these past few weeks with a few 50s and a couple of 40s thrown in. We have mostly been spared those hot, sticky nights when dew points in the 70s keep the temperature from becoming comfortable.
