Three major floods in a row with three very different Marches. March 2009 was one of the most remarkable Marches in the record book with it being the snowiest and wettest on record. The 4.62 inches of rain in March 2009 was 63% higher than the previous monthly record of 2.83 inches, a difference greater than any other month. Most months the difference between the 1st and 2nd wettest is less than 5%.
March 2010 was unique for other reasons; it was the 4th warmest month on record which lead to the earliest known crest on March 21. The other interested tidbit about last March was that on 13 days we observed with a low temperature above freezing. That was the most such days recorded in the month of March surpassing the 12 such days recorded back in 1946.
In contrast to the past two years, this March has been cold. At our current pace this month may end up being the coldest March since 1997.
