One must note that in regard to weather, March could very well be the worst month of the year. March has it all, from raging blizzards and cold waves to devastating outbreaks of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. About the only thing you don't see much of in March are tropical storms.
How many of you were around to witness the Great March Blizzard of 1993? The great extent of the extreme weather produced by that storm is about the worst you'll ever see anytime, anywhere.
March is an extreme time due to the titanic battle between air masses that often occurs. To the north, it's still cold enough to pass as midwinter, while to the south the atmosphere is warming by incredible rates. These temperature extremes create a huge amount of stress, which is somewhat relieved during the passage of major cyclones (storms).
No my friends, winter is not over yet. It's Just catching its wind for some other ruckus it will cause down the road.
