Old Farmer’s Almanac: March Will Be Sunny Then Snowy & Cold
The Old Farmer's Almanac has made their predictions for the month of March and it looks like it may be another record-breaking month.
Based on a first glance, it looks like we will be seeing a little bit of everything, which is a far cry from the snow that seemed to take over our entire month of February. (Don't believe me? Last month was our snowiest February in history.)
Thankfully for us, the Old Farmer's Almanac breaks things down by a few days at a time. Here's what they are predicting for March:
From March 1st through the 5th of the month, we will finally see some sunshine. This will bring us mild conditions.
March 6th through the 19th will bring the return of snow showers. We will see these showers closer to the 6th as they slowly transition to flurries. Expect very cold conditions. (We are used to that at this point. Ugh.)
On March 20th through the 28th, we will see periods of snow. The cold temperatures will stick around.
By the end of the month, we will see sunshine peeking out again across the Northland. Conditions will be cool.
The snow shouldn't be a huge surprise. March in the Northland is usually a bit snowier than February. Interestingly enough, the Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting below average precipitation for the month.
Sadly, they are also predicting an average temperature about four degrees below what's average for March, which is 28 degrees.
While the snow and cold isn't ideal, it can't be much worse than what we've seen this year so far. Ha!
If you aren't familiar with the Old Farmer's Almanac, those behind it make weather predictions by region. They forecast for the long term. Not everyone believes in their methodology but whether you do or not, I think it's cool to look at what they are predicting at the start of every month and see what they get right and wrong.
