MARCH Fern Ridge photo by YouNews reporter pedeedog45
Rather benign month of weather. High pressure over the region weakened fronts as they pushed into the region. As a result, fronts brought less rainfall. Strongest front on the 20th produced strong south winds with gusts near 40 mph. The continued below normal rainfall from January to March made 2013 the driest start of a year on record. NEW RECORDS: None.
