March Weather Is Like A Roller Coaster

March weather can bring extremes of heat and cold and sometimes severe weather.

March is one of those months where the old saying, "just wait a few minutes and the weather will change", rings true.  We started off the month with near record lows and some snow in much of the area.  A few days later we're basking in the lower 70s with 80° likely over the weekend.  The seasonal shift from winter to summer is a volatile time of the year.  The most severe tornado outbreak occurred on March 28, 1984, when a major tornado swept through our area killing dozens and injuring hundreds.  Early March 1980 and 1927 brought the heaviest snow ever to hit the area.  March is well know for strong winds that can gust in excess of 40 to 50 mph.   For the next few days it looks calm and absolutely beautiful.  I just have a feeling by the middle and latter part of the month we'll see a few surprises.
