March Is In The House

Today's "Marsh" webcam shot

Mornin'!  March has checked in!  It's back.  If you know me, you know that March is my least favorite month.  There's a couple of reasons but I have to first say that since February was so mild and spring-like this year, I'm hopeful that March will just follow suit and continue to bring that mild, lovely weather.  Ha.  Being a Philly girl, I was raised with weather that was much different than the coast's weather.  Little did I know.  I quickly discovered that along the coast in March, it's usually a rough transition into Spring.  While the big City and mainland for the most part begins to bloom and experience warmish, spring-like weather, the coast experiences extremely blustery, non-stop windy conditions.  I've learned that in March, the ocean's temps averages in the low-mid 40s always bringing very cold, strong, damp air over the island in the form of blustery winter winds almost non-stop while everyone else seems to be getting warmth for their blooms and buds and bulbs.  With all that said, February brought some of that spring-like preview here and there are blooms everywhere here on the island as this wild and crazy winter weather hasn't been much of a winter at all.  With all that said, we can only hope that March is as kind.  On that note, here's the weather...
It's 39° with Ms Sun shining brightly this morning.  Winds are out of the ENE at 6-8mph.  It'll be a partly sunny morning becoming cloudy this afternoon.  Temps will be in the upper 40s with E-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... 50% chance of rain (occasional showers) into the overnight.  Temps will be in the mid-40s with Southerly breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... rain until the afternoon when we'll see peeks of sunshine and temps in the mid-upper 50s with W-NW winds at 8-10mph.  Friday... rain beginning late morning, temps in the mid-40s and East winds at 15-25mph.  The weekend's looking sunny with temps around 50° and just a tad blustery.
