March 2012 vs Prior Warmest March's

The following graphs are a plot showing how this March's month-to-date average temperature compares to the other top 5 warmest months of March. The dotted blue lines are month-to-date average temperatures based on the current forecasted temperatures. The hashed black line is the average month to date temperature for March. These graphs really illustrate just how far above the previous warmest top 5 Marches this month really has been and assuming no major pattern change the last week of the month gives some indication of just how far above the record March 2012 could end up being.
