March Comes In and Out Like a Lion This Year

Close to three-day rainstorm soaks Port Washington with nearly five inches of rain.

When it comes to March weather, you have probably heard the old saying, "It comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." This year, March certainly didn't go out like a lamb.

A coastal flood warning was in effect for Port Washington until 2 a.m. today, along with a high surf advisory until 6 a.m. and a hazardous weather outlook remained in effect for the area until mid-day March 31.

During this close to three-day rainstorm, Port Washington accumulated 4.64 inches of rain heading into Wednesday, according to The Weather Channel, with 1.40 inches on Sunday, March 28; 1.67 on Monday, March 29; and 1.57 on Tuesday, March 30. This storm brought March's monthly total to 10.21 inches heading into its final day. According to The Weather Channel, the average precipitation for March in Port Washington is 4.28 inches.

The National Weather Service said there is a slight (20 percent) chance of rain or drizzle along with patchy fog before 9 a.m. today. Otherwise, it will be cloudy and then will gradually become mostly sunny, with a high near 56 degrees.

Let's hope the weather service is right and that April isn't nearly as wet.
