Weather for the Second Week of March, 2019  

Temperatures are gradually creeping up as March progresses. Our weatherman, Peter Finlayson, tells us that the average temperature for the month, as of March 17th, has risen from -7.9° C last week to -4.1°, which is still a few degrees behind the -1.4° average temperature for March.

In this 2nd week of March, we accumulated 9 mm of rain and 7 cm of snow giving us a total of 16 mm of precipitation for the week. Here are a few indications that Spring has begun to arrive in the Valley: farmers have had their first run of sap to start making Maple syrup, geese have been sighted – both Canada geese and Snow geese (last year they started returning at the end of February) and the ice on the river has started to melt with a few places where open water can be seen, although there is still thick ice in some places. Last year the ice went out around March 3rd-4th.

Of course, we now have at least 12 hours of sunlight which will surely help Spring along!
