We wrapped up the final day of March at 69 degrees, which was the coolest daytime high for the entire month. The warmest day of the month was Friday, March 22nd, with a high of 86 degrees.

The start of the month of March was pretty dry, but we did have a few rain events especially on the final weekend of March.
