IN TERMS OF WEATHER FOR YAKUTAT, MARCH WAS A VERY ERRATIC MONTH THAT SHOWCASED THE
TRANSITION INTO SPRING. WHILE OUR PRECIPITATION AND SNOWFALL TOTALS WERE NEAR
AVERAGE, THE MAJORITY OF SNOWFALL OCCURRED WITHIN A ONE WEEK PERIOD. SNOW DEPTH
REACHED 20 INCHES ON THE LAST WEEK OF WINTER THEN DISAPPEARED RAPIDLY AS RECORD-
SETTING HEAT FOLLOWED. A SERIES OF LOWS OFF THE COAST ENDED THE MONTH WITH NUMEROUS
RAIN SHOWERS AND A RESUMED THE TYPICAL OFF-SHORE FLOW TO START US WITH A RAINY
SPRING.
