PAST CLIMATE MAPS
We experienced some close calls this past February for precipitation, but we failed to get into any pattern of regular precipitation. February is our driest month and we're going to finish pretty close to normal as it is. The late month snowfalls were a nice bonus for the portions of the midwest and should at least help in adding moisture to top-layer soil. Precipitation totals nearly double from February to March, and I'm encouraged with the trend we are in. Look for precipitation to total near normal this month.
Temperatures are favored to average warmer than normal. I doubt it will be crazy warm like March from last year. Some of the sun's energy will be used to melt our snow cover rather than heating the air.
Fair skies are favored to open the first few days of the month from Friday to Sunday, March 1-3.
Precipitation prospects are expected to increase from Monday to Wednesday, March 4-6. Look for snow on Monday, March 4 with rain on March 6.
Clouds and precipitation are favored from Thursday to Sunday, March 7-10. A mix of rain changing to snow is likely, with locally heavy precipitation totals. Temperatures are expected to tumble as this system passes.
A period of mostly sunny skies and dry weather is expected from Monday to Monday, March 11-18. Little, if any, is expected during this time period with temperatures warming to above normal.
Partly cloudy skies with passing showers are favored from Tuesday to Thursday, March 19-21. Precipitation totals should be light.
Precipitation prospects increase from Friday to Sunday, March 22-24. Rain changing to snow is possible.
Fair skies with little prospects for showers are favored from Monday to Wednesday, March 25-27.
A mix of sun and clouds with a passing shower is expected from Thursday to Sunday, March 28-31. Precipitation is expected to be light to moderate.
