PA Blurb - March 2014

It was uniformly frigid across the Commonwealth during March, but precipitation totals were very diverse. Snowfall in southeastern Pennsylvania was well above average and raised the season tallies to new record levels. A swath of central Pennsylvania actually ended the month with only a trace of snow. In fact, this is the first time on record that a very cold March has produced so little snow in the central mountains. There were no severe weather reports and only a handful of lightning strikes the entire month. Despite the frequent near record chill and abundant ice on the state's rivers and lakes, there was no substantial flooding due to a mid-month warming trend and long periods with no precipitation. The freeze-thaw cycle did cause many gaping potholes and the early month snows disrupted recreation plans for many in the state. As the month closed, a soggy storm boosted rainfall totals in central counties, even causing localized flooding and prevented March 2014 from being one of ten driest.
