By every measure, March 2017 was a nasty weather month for Central New York.  March was especially tough in the wake of February's record warmth.  A warm February certainly does not portend a warm March.  During March the high temperature only reached 50 degrees five times.  We had ten days when the high temperature stayed below freezing.  The average temperature for March was 30.1 degrees, some four degrees colder than normal.  March was three degrees colder than February!  A cold front on March 2 produced a 64 mph wind gust.  Temperatures plummeted from 68 degrees on March 1 to 2 degrees on March 5.  We had seven days with wind gusts of 40+ mph.  To add insult to injury, the Syracuse area measured two feet of snow over the two-day March 13 and 14 period.  Snowfall amounts eclipsed three feet to the east and southeast of Syracuse.  March 14 was Syracuse's eighth snowiest day.  The record remains 34 inches on February 15 1946.  Rainfall and melted snow for March came in at 3.85" or about an inch more than usual.
