Weather: Spring starts not so springy (3/19/2018)

Planner for Tuesday March 20 2018

Well, the snow stopped for a bit but now it’s cold! Lows hovered around or well below 0° Sunday & Monday morning. Tomorrow morning won’t be as cold but we’ll still be near 0-10°, normal is closer to 20°! High pressure stays in control all day Tuesday, that’ll lead to plenty of sun and highs in the low 30s. Spring starts at 12:15pm and I remind you, average highs in late March are closer to 40°. We’ll be nowhere close! Wednesday, we keep it up under mostly sunny skies and highs around 33°. 

Wednesday night & Thursday the next nor’easter approaches. Our current thinking is that most of us in the North Country will watch this one go by from the grandstands. It’ll be farther south and east than the last 3. The snow shield may reach as far north as the Upper Valley; a dusting to 3″ will be possible from about White River to the Massachusetts line. If you’re farther north, you may have some passing snow showers, otherwise, this is a miss. Meanwhile, highs will climb well into the middle & upper 30s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

The last couple weeks in March have been snowy, there’s no doubt about it. Burlington has seen 30.1″ March 1-19th. We average about 11.2″ in that time & around 15″ for the entire month. If it didn’t snow another inch through the end of the month, that’d still be good enough for 8th most snow all time in March.

Have a great week!
