(CNN)-- Fewer American girls are becoming teen moms. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a new study.
It found about 230-thousand girls-- age 15 to 19-- gave birth in 2015. That's an 8% decrease from 2014.
The birth rate in that age group has been falling sharply since 2007.
At the same time- the CDC says birth rates are up among women in their 30s and 40s.
Warmer, more humid, and unsettled weather pattern develops next week.
