WEATHERWISE DURING MARCH OF 2018 IN SHREVEPORT AND BOSSIER CITY,
LOUISIANA, WE RECORDED WARMER AND WETTER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS.
THAT SAID, THIS MARCH DID NOT RANK IN THE TOP TWENTY WARMEST OR
WETTEST ON RECORD.

INDEED, AFTER RECORDING OUR WETTEST FEBRUARY ON RECORD, ONE WOULD
THINK AN ACTIVE MARCH FOLLOWS WITH SURPLUS SOIL MOISTURE.  THAT
SAID, WE RECORDED NO WEATHER RECORDS NOR SEVERE WEATHER THIS MARCH,
FOR A REMARKABLY, ATYPICAL, AND QUIET MARCH.
