In like a lion. Out like a lamb? Any predictions?

March 01, 2011 @ 08:10 By: gordon Category: Weather

Well, we’re done with February and winter in Ottawa has broken, Monday’s weather notwithstanding. The forecast for the next couple of days is calling for sunshine and warm weather (for Ottawa in the winter).

Sounds like March is coming in like a lamb. If the old adage “in like a lion, out like a lamb” holds true, then the weather at the end of March is going to be spectacularly sucky. (Personally, I’m hoping this doesn’t come true!)

My prediction is that the end of March is going to be damp with maybe one annoying dump of wet snow to remind us that it can snow in the Spring, too. It would be really nice to have a repeat of last year, which saw me golfing on April 2nd, but I’m not going to be so bold as to suggest that will happen two years in a row.

What’s your prediction for the weather at the end of March and why?
