As tens of millions of people bid good riddance to March, spring will be busting out all over during the first week of April in the South, Northeast and part of the Midwest.
Some people have described this March as being a penguin, lion, polar bear and even a stubborn mule.
“Who cares what March came in like or is going out like,” AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams said. “The simple fact that it is departing is wonderful in itself.”
The surging warmth will help lawns green up, buds to push out and blossoms to burst forth. People will be able to shed winter coats and break out short sleeves. The weather will be much more favorable for outdoor sporting activities ranging from jogging and bicycling to baseball and soccer.
