The summer months in the Northern Plains were hot and humid. That trend is now shifting to a cooler weather pattern. There will be a lot of cloud cover, so daytime maximum temperatures will be on the low side,” says Daryl Ritchison, director, North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network. “We could see only a high temperature of 50 degrees in some places.” One positive of the high heat and humidity was evaporation. Records were set during the summer months. “For Fargo, the coolest high temperature this summer so far is 71 degrees. We’ve never had a summer where there was not at least one day with a high in the 60s.” Ritchison will join the Red River Farm Network at the Big Iron Farm Show in West Fargo on Thursday, September 17.
