A look back at March’s weather
(WHSV) - If you remember the warm February we had, a cool down came quickly in the month of March.
The first week of the month started out mild with above average temperatures then cooler air moved in.
From March 10th through March 15th, there were several wintry systems.
A wintry system brought accumulating snow for the area. Most of the snow was for the higher elevations, but several places in the Valley did see a light dusting on grassy surfaces.
Following the March 12th system, upslope snow continued for the Allegheny Mountains through March 15th, resulting in several inches of snow across some of our West Virginia locations.
MILD MARCH DAYS
The week of March 20th brought milder temperatures to the area, with the warmest day of the month being March 23rd.
Several spots ended up hitting 80, which felt more like late May than March.
