March Rolls In…

Welcome to the 3rd month of the year. And with a new month comes new expectations of our weather. So, what can we expect this month? Well, here’s a snapshot:

Our average high temperatures range from the upper 50s at the beginning of the month, to the upper 60s by the end of the month. An increase of 9 degrees from beginning to end. We actually see our temperatures increase faster this month than any other month of the year. What do I mean by this? During the month of January, our average highs only increase 4 degrees from the middle of the month when we start watching our average highs warm every single day to the end. In the month of February, our average high warms 8 degrees from the beginning of the month to the end. March, it’s a 9 degree increase. In April, it’s an 8 degree increase from beginning to end. In May, it’s an 8 degree increase. In June, it’s 8 degrees as well and in July, it’s only 3 degrees before we start to watch our temperatures decrease. So, what can be said about the month of March when it comes to temperatures? It means that we can sometimes see a rapid change in our temperatures on a day to day basis but all in all, it’s a month where we average our biggest temperature increase of the year!

As for precipitation. This month can certainly play tricks on us. Remember, The United States usually averages it’s biggest snowstorms during the month of March. But, for the most part, our average precipitation is still on the low side, less than 3 inches. Though the trend is that it us creeping upward. So, you get 4 seasons basically wrapped up into one month… awesome!
