March 2011 Forecast--Prediction!!

Nice, thick clouds at sunset-Jan. 3rd, 2011
March 2011 Prediction!

My grandpa said that if you watch the weather the first 12 days of the new year, you will know what the weather will be like for the year. Here is my "official" experiment!
Actual Weather

High:  60°
Low:  37°
Wind:   4 mph
Humidity:  35% to 60%
Precipitation:  none
Sky:  Cloudy!  Almost all day long--and not white wispy clouds, clouds holding moisture!!


Today was tolerable in every way.  The morning was cold, but I was able to go in and out of the house at 6:30 a.m. without a jacket.  My windshields were clear--no frost whatsoever.  Driving into work the sun came up and it was a lovely sunrise.  There were a few clouds in the morning, but more clouds in the afternoon around 4:00 to 5:00.  When I got home I snapped a few pictures of the clouds.  Now, if they held a little more moisture, I do believe it would rain.  So, for March I am predicting rain for sure. 
Prediction for March2011

Given the cloud cover and mild temperatures, I predict March will usher in Spring for Central Texas.  We will have mild temperatures in the day and cool nights.  There will at the very least, be normal rainfall regardless of the fact that there was no rain on today's date.  March is known as the windy month, but winds were calm today.  So, we will come in like the lamb and go out like the lion for March 2011.  It might be that April will be our windy month. 

As the Irish Blessing goes--may March hold these blessings for us all:
May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
