March 2013 Monthly Climate Summaries for Western and Central Wyoming

The March 2013 climate summaries for Big Piney, Buffalo, Casper, Greybull, Lander, Lake Yellowstone, Riverton, Rock Spings, and Worland are now available online.

Overall, March was near normal, temperature-wise, although a few individual record highs/lows were broken during the month at a few locations. The notable exception was Lake Yellowstone, which was colder and wetter than normal. March proved to be an exceptionally dry month across western and central Wyoming, with most locations receiving only half of the expected normal monthly totals.  Casper received a near-normal amount of precipitation for March, however it is still 17.1" of snowfall below normal for the entire season. Lander did not receive as much as Casper this month, and remains 12.4" of snowfall below normal as well.  Stay tuned for an update to our Drought Information page, which will be updated by the middle of the month.
