This weekend will be nothing like last weekend, but we really should not be too surprised about that. Today shouldn’t be too bad, but it will be wet tonight and tomorrow and Sunday we can throw in some wind into the mix.
Great grass growing weather. Maybe next weekend we will get another chance to cut it.
Since we’ve started a new month, its good to look back on the past month to get a sense of where we are, I’ve also included March 2012.
Ave Temp: 5.9C
High Temp: 10.8C
Low Temp: 0.9C
Ave Temp: 3.7C
Ave High Temp: 7.9C
Ave Low Temp: 0.5C
Ave Temp: 6.4C
Ave High Temp: 11.9C
Ave Low Temp: 2.4C
As you can see, we have had a remarkable shift compared to last year. We got almost 100mm more rain in March last year than we did this year, and it was much colder as well.
Interestingly, if you average out 2012 and 2013, you come up with averages of 5.0C, 9.9C, 1.7C, 199mm… Still lower than normal for the highs and averages, but higher than normal for lows and bang on normal for precipitation.
That said we have to work in the now.
The warm temperatures and lack of rain means the snowpack has probably stopped growing. The lack of rain shouldn’t have been marked enough to affect growers. April is our last month where the normal rainfall is over 100mm. It’d be good to get our normal amount. The monthly forecast is dry and cool, we will see how it works out.
