March Weather Madness

Posted: Updated:

Last year when march came so did early warm weather. March can been a battle between winter and spring, right now winter is winning.  

For now this March weather has brought us snow and wind.

"I think everybody's ready to be done with this." says Carol Bessire. she remembers back to last year, "I was just thinking, last year it was 69 above and I was sitting on my patio with friends, and now blizzard warnings again hahaha."

Last year on this day we set a record at 76 degrees. It was such a unique year that people were ice fishing in 70 degree weather in Otter Tail County. Today our high was around 20, that's better than the record low in our area of 17 below, but it is still making some thankful to be getting away.

"staying in Orlando just outside of Orlando, and we're going to Disney and bush gardens and sea world. I hope it's nice when we get home, they can blow snow while we're gone and hopefully it's perfect when we come back." says Darren Peckover who's lucky enough to be flying out to Florida on Monday.

But for those of us who are staying up in the Mid-West we're waiting to see if the end of March is going to let us bring out the flip flops like last year, or keep on our boots.

"I was thinking on the way here, march madness oh yah that's basketball but so is our weather." Carol laughs. 

On Sunday the 17th we were 14 degrees below the average high, which is 36 degrees.
