SNOW FOR THE MONTH:
March madness! We have had 13.5″ of snow this month, putting us above the March average of 7.8″.
It doesn’t compare to last year, when we has 23.3″ of snow — the most in the last 6 year!
So far, Boston has recorded 27.4″ of snow since Nov 1st. That means we March gave us about 50% of the seasonal total.
FIRST 70º DAY POSSIBLE:
We just might hit 70º on Saturday, and it will be the first 70s reading this year.
Last year our first 70º day was on February 20th, way before the average date of April 8th.
If we hit 70 on Saturday, we’ll be hitting it about a week before the average date.
