The preliminary climate summary maps for March 2023 show that the entire region was warmer than normal, although not as far above normal as February. And this was in spite of two separate periods of frost and low temperatures in the middle of the month. Most of the region was also drier than normal, although northern Alabama and northwest Georgia and a strip of land in northern Florida were wetter than normal for the month. Because of the warm and relatively dry conditions, drought expanded through the month, especially in the Florida Peninsula.
