Bergenfield March 2012 Summary

Hi,

 

March 2012 broke records for temperature and precipitation here in Bergenfield, New Jersey. The average temperature of 51.2F ( 10.6C )  was 9.1F ( 5.1C )  above the long-term mean and smashed the previous record of 47.0F ( 8.3C ) set in 2010. New daily marks were set on the 12th, 19th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd. I recorded a daily maximum of 79F ( 26.1C ) on the 19th and 22nd. The flowers in my garden have all come into bloom 5 – 6 weeks early.

This stretch of warm weather that has lasted continuously for more than a year is truly  historic.

 

Monthly precipitation also set a new record. I measured 0.92″ ( 23.4mm ) which broke the previous low of 0.93″ set in 2006.  No snowfall was noted…not even a flurry.

 

 

Take it easy,

 

Rudy
