March Outlook from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center
NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center issued their outlook for March late last week, with a colder month expected ahead for many areas of the nation. Below average temperatures are forecast from the Northeast southward through the Tennessee Valley and Southern Plains to the Gulf of Mexico. Warmer than normal temperatures are favored in the Southwest.
Below-normal temperatures are favored across much of the eastern two-thirds of the country during March, with best chances for a warm month across parts of California, the Great Basin, and Northern Alaska. https://t.co/JI2DUvhln5 pic.twitter.com/3r6UUjkYAl

It may be a quieter end to the snow season in the Great Lakes, Central Plains and along the West Coast. That’s where drier than normal weather is in the forecast. A wetter than average month is expected along the Gulf of Mexico and Florida.
