This winter season has been a cold one but as we close the books on February, and look ahead to March, the overall averages doesn't look to change.
The month of March is looking to still have below average temperatures for eastern KELOLAND and western KELOLAND is expected to have an overall average month. There is a bull's eye over the Great Lakes where the coldest temperatures are expected to be and the desert southwest looks to be warmer than average with a bull's eye over southern California, southern Nevada and most of Arizona.
As far as precipitation is concerned, KELOLAND is looking to have an average amount of moisture this March. There is an area centered on southern Idaho where they are expecting greater than average amounts of moisture while the desert southwest is expecting to be drier than the average.
Now this weekend is looking to be much colder than average but there does look like a slow warming trend that lasts into at least the middle of March.
