Weather Talk: Start of school year in F-M cooler than it was last year

One year ago, the weather at the start of the school year caused controversy for being so hot. Hot and humid weather forced many schools across North Dakota to close for several days. 
From Aug. 25 through Sept. 15 last year, Fargo-Moorhead had six days in the 90s and seven in the 80s. There were seven more days in the 70s and just two in the 60s.
This year, over the same time period, there have been no days in the 90s and just four in the 80s. There have been 11 days in the 70s, three in the 60s, and four days with highs in the 50s. 
Weather over this 25-day period has shifted from about three degrees above average to three degrees below average. 
It is not always hot at the beginning of the school year.  However, it is still much more likely to be hot in late August and early September than it is in late May and early June.
