March is the month of expectation.
-Emily Dickinson, March is the Month of Expectation

March can get cold as there have been cold blasts in the past. It even snowed once in March in 1932. Leap Day 1932 is the warmest Leap Day recorded at 85°F. 10 days later, it is cold again.

Unfortunately the 12Z GFS suggests Spring like weather will be squashed come next Wednesday as yet another strong shot of Arctic air arrives bringing a chance of more freezing temperatures almost to the Coast into next weekend.

I thought I read here about a week ago that first week or two of March was looking warm? Not happening now I guess?

I'm putting in my request for 90 degrees.
Bring it.

We are beginning to see a trend develop regarding the strong Arctic front expected to arrive next Wednesday. More wintry mischief may be an issue as the cold upper trough swings across our Region next week.

Re: March: Warm Up Early Week/Arctic Front Arrives Wednesday

Post by srainhoutx » Fri Feb 27, 2015 4:01 pm

NWS San Antonio/Austin as well as Houston/Galveston already mentioning the possibility of wintry precipitation next Wednesday into Thursday with the strong Arctic front arriving mid next week. I will enjoy the warming trend Monday and Tuesday before the bottom falls out again temperature wise. Enough of this cold weather...sigh
