Southwest Lower Michigan Weather History

The Weather History for March 21st

3/21/1983
Spring starts on a snowy note with record daily snowfall of 6 to 8 inches from Muskegon to Lansing.
3/21/2008
A record 6.6 inches of snow fell at Grand Rapids on the first day of Spring. Muskegon had a record 7 inches, while 8 to 14 inches of snow fell south of a line from Holland to Jackson.
3/21/2012
Spring feels more like summer as temperatures reach all-time record highs for the month of March. Grand Rapids hits 87 degrees, during a remarkable string of four straight days in the 80s. This unprecendented warmth leads to March, 2012 becoming the warmest March on record. Unfortunately, the heat brings fruit trees into early bloom, and colder weather at the end of the month and in April results in massive losses to orchards and vineyards.
