The Lion and the Lamb

We all know the reputation March has for being a big transitional weather month, although this far north it’s often April that has the turmoil. This year, however, March has outdone herself. Earlier this month we hit -13°F on my home thermometer, and yesterday, about 10 days later, we were at 58°F. That’s a pretty big swing, even for March. I tried to find some information on monthly temperature variations, but only could find averages. For southern Minnesota the average March low is 24 and the high is 41. The state records are far beyond those values and well over 100 years old (-50°F in 1897 and 88°F in 1910). Just based on personal observations, this is a pretty dramatic month so far. And, if the predictions are even close, it’s not over yet. Tomorrow’s low is projected to be 1°F. I think I’m getting whiplash.
