By the calendar, we are now several days into astronomical spring. By the frigid weather, however, you’d never know it. The 4th nor'easter in the past 3 weeks is currently pulling away from the Eastern US coast, has brought heavy snow to much of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. In its wake, atypically cold temperatures will persist, with high temperatures in the lower 40s °F and low temperatures in the 20s. The cold, winter-like weather that has dominated this month shows no signs of leaving anytime soon either. March is on pace to be colder (and snowier) than February, with a mean temperature so far of 35.6 °F (2.0 °C) compared to February’s warmest ever 38.1 °F (3.4°C). March was also warmer than February last year, but this feat had only occurred twice before in the 144-year meteorological record at Boston and is extremely rare for the Eastern US. Nevertheless, it is almost April. Spring is here - the days are getting longer, the sunshine stronger, and there’s only so long Old Man Winter can maintain an icy grip on the region.
