Reviewing The First Half of March
Despite the uber warmth we've seen in much of the last week around here, there have been occasional chill shots early in the month. We had lows in the 20's on the morning of the 6th and the region was below average on three occasions so far out of the first two and a half weeks of the month. It hasn't been quite wall-to-wall warmth although it sorta feels that way.
In terms of rainfall, it has been rather dry this month -- just 0.42" of rain so far...about an inch and a half below average for the region, which continues the dry trend we've seen in much of the Mid Atlantic since December.
