Happy springtime! If you were out Friday afternoon between noon and 3 PM you might have experienced it. Otherwise, springtime temperatures have been rather elusive this year.
March was a rather interesting month. We didn't hit 60 until the 31st, setting records in some spots for the latest 60 degree day. And virtually every day in March was at or below the average high. Even the 31st was only a few degrees above average.
But it was the incessant rain that was really impressive. It kicked off on the first with the end of storm that began on the last day of February. 2.19" of rain fell during that storm, although only 0.56" was technically in March. But that was just the beginning. I recorded rain fall on 29 of the 31 days in March. Including 24 straight days from the 7th through the 30th. I recorded 7.04" in total for March. Most days did not have a lot of rain, but I did have 19 days with at least a tenth of an inch of rain.
And I'll leave you with this note. The long range outlook for spring is for a cooler and wetter spring than average. I doubt it will be worse than last year, but it's possible. And we're certainly on track for it so far.
