WHITE LION: March 2015 enters Whitley County with snowfall, continued woeful weather

March 1, 2015

Whitley Countians are experiencing March 2015 "coming in like
a lion . . ." – a white lion to be exact.

Three to five inches of snow fell on Whitley County on the first day of March.

Slightly warmer temperatures (but still unseasonably cold) are in the forecast, but an ice pellet, sleet and snow event on Tuesday, plus a brief cold snap, should continue the woeful weather.

More seasonable temperatures are in the long-range forecast for next weekend, which will coincide with clocks springing forward for Daylight Savings Time.
