March is almost here. It arrives on Friday, and as the calendar flips to a new month, we usually begin to transition into a new season. While spring officially arrives on the vernal equinox, (this year March 20th), meteorologists consider March 1st as the first day of spring. That’s because the month of March usually offers widely varying temps and storms across the United States. Weather patterns may bring record warm temperatures one day, and bitter cold snow storms the next.
