For the first time since March 7, the temperature has reached 50F.
So far, in this region, it has been one of the coldest March's on record, with the average temperature 5 degrees below normal (which is a significant number streched over such a long period of time). The normal high for this time of year is 50F and yet we have reached that number only for the fifth time this whole year. Every day this month has been below normal except for a three day stretch early in the month (with one of those days skewed by a "midnight high*", I believe)
This must also be the latest in the year that Toledo has not reached 60F. It is not uncommon to hit 60F or even 70F by mid-March.
Let's hope the 50+ weather is here to stay and maybe even a stretch of 60s by next weekend.
*A day in which the midnight temperature is the highest of the day, common in winter. It unfairly skews the average temperature of the day because it is counted as the official high for that day even though everyone's asleep and the daytime high could be much colder. They should add up the hourly readings and divide by 24 instead of just averaging out the high and low temp for the day.
