Last March

People are asking, "where is Spring?"
Well after last March (2012)
people got spoiled….Yes most of last march was very warm, highs in the 50s to 60s across much of the area, with no snow to speak of.Last March there was only 2 snow days and that was on the 2nd and 3rd  which brought us 2.50” of snow….So far this March we have had  5 snow days…the 4th/5th 8th 10th 11th…. So far this March we have seen 20” of snow… On the average we see 10.2” of snow in March, so we are well over that…..What was interesting…Back in 2011 we were also above normal in the snowfall dept…Coming in at 14” of snow…..Back in 2010 we also had a warm March were we had temps in the 60s that broke records….Temps this March have been a tad below normal so far…..

So before all you spring weather lovers get carried away by saying spring is here, well no its not yet….Look what happen last year after a very warm March, we got snow in April, and to put even more of a damper on you, there has been a few years we had seen snow in the first part of May….In fact just back in 2011 we saw that….So spring lovers, keep it real and keep it in check! As you all know this time of year is a time for change yes we should see warm days but we still will see more snow….

Once May gets here, after the first week then you can say spring is here….The calendar says Spring starts on March 20th however as we all know,  weather does not run on a time frame….Just like watch boxes…..You can have severe weather outside the watch box area, as we have seen many times……
