We are definitely going through a little cold snap. None of the high temps in the long term forecast break the 50 degree mark. The daily average high for March 20 in Morgantown is 53°F. The record high is 79°F and the record low is 15°F, so even though we are a little cooler than average, we are still well within the expected range of temps for this time of year (high temp today is about 41°F).
I feel like some folks think that as soon as the calendar flips to March, that winter is over and it should at least be in the 60's everyday. That's fine, and I'm probably in the minority of people that don't wish for clear skies and warm temps everyday of the year (as a gardener I like rain). But to be honest, March is the historically the fourth coldest month on average we experience (behind only December, January, and February). The average high for the entire month is 52°F, with the average low still a sub-freezing 29°F.
