April 2015 outlook

March 31, 2015

RTMarch is the third snowiest month of the year in the Twin Cities, based on 30 year averages from 1981 to 2010. January and December are typically snowier than March. An “average” March brings us 10.2 inches of snow. We were below average this March at MSP airport, with only 6.8 inches. Unless some very strange things happen in April, November will be the snowiest month of this winter season, with a tally of 9.4 inches.

March started out very chilly, followed by series of nice warm days. Cool temps returned during the third week of the month. Our warmest temperature in the Twin Cities was 70 degrees, on March 15th, and the coldest reading was 7 degrees below zero on the 5th. The average temperature for March was 2.7 degrees above normal in the Twin Cities.

Looking ahead, the April temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows equal chances of above normal and below normal temperatures over Minnesota and Wisconsin:
