March 8, 2017 – Next Sixteen Weeks

Now that we are well into the second week of the month of March, below zero weather is mostly a memory. It sometimes get cold in March, but not that cold, and indeed both the temperatures and day length are rapidly increasing — 3 degrees and 20 minutes a week. In three short weeks, the average temperature will reach 50 degrees, and in five weeks, dusk won’t be until after 8 PM. By April 3rd, the low temperature in Albany is above freezing, although we can still get a decent frost in Albany until May.
