March Weather Predictions
You may have heard the old saying, “If March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb”, and the march winds will be blowing. Now that it’s March, let’s take a look at the long-range weather predictions for the month.
According to one of my favorite sources, “The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2014″, here’s how March shapes up for central New York, weatherwise:
“Average temperature: 37 degrees (1 degree below average)
Precipitation: 3 inches (which is average)
March 1 – 7: Snow showers, cold
March 8 – 11: Sunny, turning warmer
March 12 – 15: Rainy periods, cooler (Let’s hope it’s not one of those rainy periods on March 15t for the Utica St. Patrick’s Day Parade).
March 16 – 19: Rain, then wet snow and colder
March 20 – 24: Snow showers and cold
March 25 – 31: Rainy periods and mild”
My birthday is on March 9th, so I imagine it will be sunny and warm that day (fingers crossed). And of course, spring arrives this month!
