NOAA just released their outlook for March 2015 for the USA this weekend.
This outlook is not what skiers and riders in the West were hoping for. This outlook does not shout “Miracle March” at all… This outlook offer any assistance to the historic drought in California…
What this forecast does show is continued snow and cold on the East Coast. This outlook also looks good for Taos, New Mexico and Southwest Colorado.
This outlook shows above average precipitation for Southern Alaska, the Southwest, the Southeast, and the East Coast. This outlook shows below average precipitation for the Pacific Northwest, where we need precipitation the most.
This outlook shows above average temperatures in the entire West and Alaska. This outlook shows below average temperatures for the Northeast and North Central regions of the USA.
Lets hope this outlook is wrong and that the West gets lots of cold and plenty of snow this March. We’re still hoping for a Miracle March.
