According to a report from the National Climate Data Center, June was the warmest on record across the contiguous United States, and the January to June period was the third warmest. The June average temperature was 71.8°F, or 3.3°F above the 20th century average, surpassing the previous record of 71.6°F set in 1933. The year-to-date average temperature was 50.8°F, which is 3.2°F above the 20th century average. The mean June temperature in Fargo-Moorhead was 2.6°F above average at 68. 8°F. Based on global sea surface temperatures, the warm conditions are likely to continue through the summer before transitioning to near-average or colder than average weather this winter.
