July was a very average month for Fargo Moorhead. The average temperature was 72.5 degrees which is 1.5 degrees above the long term average. Rainfall was 2.78 inches which was just 0.01 inches below average.

The warmest temperature was 91 on July 27 and the coolest was 42 on July 7. For the month, there was just one day with a high in the 60s, six days in the 70s, 21 in the 80s and just three in the 90s. Low temperatures were in the 40s once, the 50s nine times, and the 70s 21 times.

Because daily records are kept midnight to midnight, the record does not reveal the three nights with overnight lows in the 70s because on all three occasions, the temperature cooled below 70 before midnight the following night. The daily average temperature was above average 21 of the 31 days, indicating a month with consistently slightly above average temperatures but an absence of any truly “much above average” weather.
