Cold Start To March

March 6, 2014, 5:30 PM by Scot Mundt

Cold Start To March

Much of KELOLAND enjoyed close to or above average temperatures on Thursday. It's been a long time coming, especially in a month when thoughts turn to spring. The first five days of March produced the coldest highs in Sioux Falls over the past 24 years.

This March, the first five days had an average high of only thirteen degrees, that's twenty-four degrees away from our climate average.  Since 1990, the coldest start we had was in 2003 when the average high was 24 degrees. On the other side, the warmest start we had was in 2000 with an average high of fifty-nine degrees.

That March consisted of record highs of sixty-seven and seventy-one degrees on March 4 and 5. While not record breaking, the sunshine and temps helped melt plenty of snow and ice on this Thursday. 

On another interesting note, it's been colder during the first five days of March with an average high of 13 degrees, than the first five days of January and February which both had an average high of fifteen degrees.

The warm news in all of this is the seven day forecast does not have a high any colder than one we had at the beginning of the month.
