BUFFALO, NY - After a brutal winter with two blizzards, the first day of the Astronomical Spring is finally here.
Based on climate when there's a harsh winter, spring can take longer to get started. And according to the Farmer's Almanac, March will continue to be mainly cold and snowy right toward the end of the month.
Long range weather models do show colder temperatures will continue. However April should finally start to warm up which could last into May, with a bit more rain than normal.
One thing is for sure, you will get to use your winter gear and skies a little longer this year.
