Coldest Late March Weather Since 2002 (Better Comparison Is 2001)March 19th, 2013 at 4:09 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Late March 2013 is & will continue to be so much colder (by a long shot) than the record-breaking March 2012. In fact, tomorrow looks to be 58 degrees colder than the high temperature last year at the same time.
Overall, overnight lows the next two nights & tomorrow high looks to be the coldest since March 26-27, 2002.
On those two days, 7″ of snowfall was on the ground & the high was 27 with a low of 16 on March 26 & 32 with a low of 10 on March 27. Actually, 2001 is a better comparison, though. March 26-27, 2001 we had NO snowpack & highs/lows were 28/16 & 34/17.
What makes our cold snap remarkable is that there is no snowpack here all the way to Wisconsin & it is still unseasonably cold.
