PAST CLIMATE MAPS
Colder than normal temperatures dominated the month of February after a relatively mild December and January. The upper winds that had shown some signs of keeping the colder temperatures to our east lapsed back into their previous pattern, which brought the cold more over the Midwest. It doesn't seem like we're going to break out of this pattern soon. Expect below normal temperatures for much of March.
Precipitation was also below normal last month. The areas to our south and east have been the ones receiving much of the winter's share of snow. That may change a bit this month, however, I'm still expecting below normal precipitation this month.
Mostly sunny and cold conditions are favored for Sunday and Monday, March 1-2.
Clouds are expected to be on the increase, bringing the possibility of a winter storm event from Tuesday to Thursday, March 3-5. Moderate to locally heavy snow totals are possible.
Sunny skies are favored for Friday, March 6 and much of the day Saturday, March 7.
I like the prospects for a region-wide winter storm event from Sunday to Tuesday, March 8-10. Moderate to locally heavy snow is possible with temperatures falling.
Expect an extended period of dry weather and sunshine from Wednesday to Monday, March 11-16.
A mix of sun, clouds and passing light snows are favored from Tuesday to Friday, March 17-20. Snow totals should be light.
Partly sunny skies are expected on Saturday, March 21.
Mostly cloudy skies with passing precipitation are favored from Sunday to Tuesday, March 22-24. I wouldn't be surprised to see a mix bag of precipitation types: snow, ice and light rain.
Mostly sunny skies are expected from Wednesday to Friday, March 25-27.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies with a chance of light passing precipitation event is favored from Saturday to Tuesday, March 28-31. Temperatures should be near normal.
