In like a lion.  Out like a lamb.  That's the old saying about the weather in March.  Well, in Cleveland, March decided to go out like a lion as well! https://twitter.com/NWSCLE/status/1112197538982039552 On Saturday night, rain changed over to snow and continued into Sunday morning.  Scattered lake-effect snow showers continued well into the afternoon across northern Ohio.  As a result, several inches of heavy, wet snow piled up across the Cleveland area. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1112492267095224321 While many areas only picked up one or two inches, a few suburbs south and east of Cleveland witnessed snow accumulations of up to 6 inches! During the month of March, snow is certainly normal for the Cleveland area.  In fact, the average March snowfall is 12.6 inches.  Seasonal snowfall in Cleveland is 68.1 inches, or just over five and a half feet. This season, however, has been well below normal for snowfall.  Cleveland has seen roughly half of its normal snowfall this season.  Through March 31st, the city has only recorded 32.7 inches of snow at Hopkins International Airport (Cleveland's official climate site). Looking ahead, based on the time of year, the chance for snow will become less and less likely.  The forecast for the first several days of April includes milder temperatures and the chance for late-week rain showers in Cleveland.
