March 2016 Outlook for Ohio

The average temperature for March will be above normal. Precipitation is likely to be slightly below normal for the month.


March is typically a transition month when the weather pattern changes from winter to spring. This March will follow that typical pattern. The temperature will be below normal for the first few days of the month. The weather will shift to a much warmer pattern during the second week of the month and it is likely to stay warmer than normal for much of the rest of the month. A few days could bring near record high temperatures. There will be a few surges of colder air, but the temperature will average above normal for the month.

A series of low pressure systems will move across Ohio periodically during the month and bring mostly rain. Even with the low pressure systems, the precipitation could end up being a little below normal for the month.
