Time to get rid of winter ... you know: stick a fork in it and throw it out ... but it is only March. This is what to expect the first month of spring:
A) Temps below average (average is low 40s to the mid 50s by months end for highs)
B) Precipitation above average (average ~3.2")
c) Snowfall above average (Average ~ 6")
1) Bitter cold air for Monday - Wednesday. Below zero likely Monday night. Some clouds will save us for Tuesday night. Amazing cold for March.
2) "Warm up" if you can call it that near the end of the week. Temps will warm into the 30s to near 40 by Friday.
3) Large storm moving slowly up the SE coast of SC/NC will have to be to be watched. It will make us cloudy for Thursday with a stiff easterly wind developing. But what about rain/wet snow? I think it will just skirt past us to the east. But this will have to be watched carefully.
4) Cold front approaching on Friday, which could lead to some kind of storm over the weekend. since we are getting near spring time, the atmosphere starts changing, so the picture gets more challenging. But some moist system may try to lift NE along this front.
