Weather forecast for march 21, 2015

Mother Nature put all of us in the Northeast on our toes in January and February 2015, as she bombarded us with nonstop winter storms for over 6 weeks. The unusually busy trend continued into March, the first month of climatological spring, and Old Man Winter hit us with a slew of storms, including one of the season’s biggest for New Jersey and Pennsylvania! Although we did get our first taste of spring in the middle of the month, March did not end on a high note, leaving many areas with a fresh layer of snow in the final days of the month. Aside from the snow, residents from Baltimore to Boston have been subjected to record-breaking cold temperatures, with some reporting the coldest March temperatures in nearly 50 years! Let’s get into the specifics.
From March 1st to March 5th, the Northeast was battered by a series of snow and ice incidents. The first of the three events occurred on March 1st, when a coastal storm created moderate to heavy snow bands across New England and the Hudson Valley, but mixed snow, sleet, and freezing rain across the Mid-Atlantic. From New York City to southern New Hampshire, 3 to 6 inches of snow fell, with up to a quarter inch of ice accumulating on top of 1 to 3 inches of snow in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.

Monday midday weather forecast – march 23, 2015

In New York City, March 2015 was a bit of a temperature rollercoaster. Temperatures ranged from a chilly 27°F to a warm 62°F. However, the cold won out in the end, with readings below normal on 23 of the 31 days. The prolonged cold spells assisted in lowering the city’s average monthly temperature to 38.1°F, which is 4.4°F below normal. As a result, March 2015 was the coldest March in the city in 31 years.
March 2015 was exceptionally snowy in terms of precipitation. According to the National Weather Service, this was the 6th snowiest March on record in New York City. In Central Park, the city reported 18.6 inches of snow, which is 14.7 inches above normal. On the first day of spring, we even had snow.

Only the summaries for Peoria, Springfield, and Lincoln are considered “official,” indicating that they are the station of record for those cities. The other summaries are “supplemental,” suggesting that another site in the area acts as the city’s official climate station.

There are two key explanations for this.

For example, upper-level ridging has continued to hang around the West Coast or eastern Pacific for most of the past two years.

The other is the exceptionally warm eastern Pacific ocean waters, which have been dubbed “The Blob” in recent months.

The growing season is running well ahead of schedule as a result of all the warm weather.
My apple trees are starting to bloom; they normally bloom in a month.
Chris Markes was out in the Hood River Valley today and notes that the blossoms are already at their peak…three weeks before the main blossom festival.
So get out there as soon as possible!
The ridge has broken down several times in the last year, enabling us to return to a rainy and cool weather pattern for a week or two, or three.
For at least the first two weeks of April, this is happening again.
There will most definitely be more snow above 5,000 feet between now and April 15th than we have seen since December!
There were still a lot of showers in the valleys.
Let’s only hope the blossoming trees aren’t ruined by frost.
