Old Farmer’s Almanac: Don’t Expect Spring Weather in March
After the polar vortex and the snowiest February on record it's safe to say everyone is ready for spring. Everyone expect Mother Nature apparently. The Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting a cold and snowy March for us. They break down their month-long forecast by the week:
- Mar 1-5 Sunny, mild
- Mar 6-19 Snow, then flurries, very cold
- Mar 20-28 Snowy periods, cold
- Mar 29-31 Sunny, cool
March is typically snowier than February but I can't imagine this March being snowier than this February. We crushed our February snowfall record this year with 40-inches of snow. And our winter snow total is also way above average -The National Weather Service says 68.2 inches of snow fell in Rochester during the 2018-2019 meteorological winter (Dec 1st - Feb 28th). That's 33 inches more than we typically get.
