The Week Ahead

Curtis Smith

Spring snow

Last March, we had five days with highs in the 80s. It was the warmest March in the history of Fort Wayne. This March has been a little different.

So far, we’ve had only two days in the 50s and not one single day in the 60s. On top of that, we’ve had more than a foot of snow this month, and that total will grow today. Neither March has been normal, but putting your finger on a normal March is difficult. Perhaps more than any other month, the weather can do anything it wants. One year it’s constant heat, the next a deep freeze.

Weather wise: Coming into today, we have had only two Marches with more snow than this one: 1964 had 19.5 inches of snow, and 1984 had 13.3 inches.
