The month of March was very mundane when it came to the weather. It wasn’t too great, but it wasn’t too bad either. We officially transitioned from Winter to Spring, but it wasn’t until the very end of March until it started to feel like it! March was cooler than normal, extending the streak to four straight months of below normal temperatures. We had two more freezes which gave us a total of 47 freezes for the winter season, equaling the same number as last year and that being the 10th most of all of our winters.
Once we got to March people started asking me about when the warm weather was going to return. Not only had we experienced some very cold weather over the past couple of months, but we hadn’t even had an occasional warm spell to offset the cold. This is kind of an unusual stat, but I think it really reaffirms what a lot of people had been thinking, that this was a long and cold winter. On March 27, we hit 80° for the first time since November 15, which means we had 132 consecutive days below 80°. This is one of the longest stretches of below 80° that we have ever experienced here in Central Texas.
