REMARKS...

MARCH CAME IN ON THE LION SIDE WITH PLENTY OF WIND IN THE FIRST WEEK
OF THE SEASON. THE PERIOD FROM MARCH 3 TO MARCH 6 HAD AVERAGE WIND
SPEEDS OF OVER SEVENTEEN MILES PER HOUR WITH GUSTS OF AT LEAST 39
MILES PER HOUR EACH DAY. ONLY ONE HUNDREDTH OF AN INCH OF
PRECIPITATION FELL FROM MARCH 1 TO MARCH 15. ONLY EIGHT OTHER
MARCHES ON RECORD HAD LESS THAN THAT. THE LAST HALF OF THE MONTH
FEATURED MORE PRECIPITATION BUT THE TOTAL FOR THE MONTH STILL RANKED
IN THE LOWER HALF OF THE MARCHES ON RECORD.
