The year 2012 saw the 3rd warmest March in Texoma history**.
The statistics tell the story:
WHAT ABOUT THIS SUMMER?
Quite a few viewers have asked me about the link between the warm start to spring and a possibly hot summer. Well, the good news is there’s really no connection:
>>>2011 was our hottest summer on record, but March 2011 didn’t even make the top 10 warmest.
>>>The summer of 1998 was rather brutal, but March of that year wasn't found among the top 10 for high temperatures either.
>>>The year 1980 saw another blistering summer in Texoma while March of that year wasn’t particularly warm.
So a warm March offers few clues on what to expect this July.
