Moving To SubFreezing

The coldest high temperature in Fargo Moorhead so far this season has been 37 degrees.  That has occurred twice so far, once in late October and also earlier this month.  Therefore we have yet to record our first sub-freezing high temperature of the season.  The average such occurrence is on November 7.

Last year we made it to November 16 before we recorded a high below 32 degrees and just three years ago that first sub-freezing high held off until December 2.   That was the 2nd latest since 1881 with the record occurring back in 1999 when our first high below 32 degrees occurred on December 5.  The only other year when that milestone occurred in December was back in 1899.

After the storm passes through the area over the next couple of days, the air mass moving into the area may bring us our first subfreezing high and if it does, it will occur right on schedule.
