From Tom, WA1KDD, in Acushnet MA
A much colder than normal March here in the northern part of Acushnet, with below normal precipitation. Snowfall was a little above normal for the month. Cold and windy made go fly a kite out of the question.
March 2017 with a mean temperature of 34.6 degrees was slightly colder than any of the previous Winter Season months. Winds gusted to over 40 mph three times during the month and almost half of the month saw winds gusting above 25 mph. Plenty of pick up sticks.
The low barometer of 28.86″ during the March 14th. snow by rain by noon event at my location was the third lowest March barometer reading on my records. The March 14th.Blizzard of 1993 saw a 28.50″ low barometer and a rain to snow event on March 8th.. 2005 saw 28.68″
