March will go out like a lamb this year, but you can hardly call any of this month’s weather harsh. No measurable snowfall was recorded in the past 31 days.
This year marks only the second month of March since the early 1870’s that weather officials have not recorded any measurable snowfall.
Dave Sage with the National Weather Service in Buffalo says the last snowfall between Buffalo and Rochester was on February 28th.
And that's not the only anomaly this winter.
Sage says storm tracks all winter long were South of us – by the time they moved far enough to the North in March, the weather was just too warm for snow.
Sage will not rule out snow in April – he makes note of 1989, when we received 8 inches of snow on one day in May.
