with 11.6 inches, this was the fifth snowiest March since 1980 and not only did this month have the same number of days of measurable precipitation as last March (12), both Marches had a nearly identical total amount (5.17" and 5.25").


Hi Rob, as usual your monthly recap for March was informative and interesting. In addition to what you noted, I wanted to point out that 26 of the 31 days of March 2018 had low temps in the 30s. This has happened only 17 other times going back to 1872. Also, did you realize that the 8.2" of snow on the 21st was a new daily record (previously 1958)?


in my opinion, the (most) jaw dropping statement in this analysis was when you said "All but 0.11" of the month's 5.17" came from these nor'easters." in other words, this is saying the nor'easters are the only thing that kept this month from being the second driest on record.


this month had six days with a low temperature of 33°, the most of any March, breaking a tie of twelve other Marches with four such lows. this month also tied 1960, 1924 and 1897 as the March with the most number of days (five) to have a low temperature of 32°.
