NOAA: March 2016 was 4th warmest on record

The latest monthly climate summary from NOAA was released yesterday.  It shows that for March 2016, the monthly average temperature was the 4th warmest on record and the warmest since 2012.  (Incidentally, the record pollen count in recent years occurred in 2012, but we’ve had a lot this year too due to many things blooming at the same time).  The precipitation was highly variable across the lower 48 states.  You can read the summary at
