March came in like a lamb and is forecast to go out like a lamb.

In fact, a lion was nowhere in sight during the entire month.

For the first time in 14 years, it didn't snow once in Alexandria for the whole month of March.


Even though there's still five more days to go, no precipitation is forecast for the weekend and temperatures next week are predicted to climb into the 60s.
