Nick Diller weather summary: An ordinary March 2019

Great Barrington — There was nothing really unusual about March 2019.

The temperatures were pretty much normal, as the past 54 years have shown with a mean of 34.5.

But it was drier, with only one-third the amount of rain. Even factoring in the melted snow from the 10 inches we got still did not help.

The 10 inches of snow brings our running total to 54 inches for the season. The average is about 65; we probably will not make last year’s total of 95 inches, which included 42 inches for March.

April’s snowfall average is 2.5 inches for the Great Barrington area, but heavy snowstorms have occurred, such as 11 inches in 1972 and 18 inches in 1982. We hope this April won’t be one of those.
