The saying goes: If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. Is there any truth to this saying?
Weather sayings are as colorful as our imagination. While many are based on careful observations and turn out to be accurate, others are merely rhymes or beliefs of the people who came before us.
With March being such a changeable month, in which we can see warm spring-like temperatures or late-season snowstorms (in other parts of the country), you can understand how this saying might hold true in some instances. We can only hope that if March starts off cold and stormy it will end warm and sunny, but the key word is hope. However, this saying seems be to more of a rhyme rather than a true weather predictor.
Some other March related lore includes:
- -A dry March and a wet May? Fill barns and bays with corn and hay.
-As it rains in March so it rains in June.
-March winds and April showers? Bring forth May flowers.
What will the weather be like on Amelia Island in March? With the month starting out in the high 70’s and low 80’s, it seems more like March is coming in like a lamb.
