    I will go with 7.1C, westerly themed but becoming drier and brighter as the month progresses, of course the exact set up could change the CET dramatically.

    One thing I will say is that I think March will be snowless regardless, just a hunch.

    Coldest month of winter for the second year running, yet 2+ degrees warmer than last year.

    Is March not a spring month?

    Will go for 6.7*C please.

    Probably a cold start, but reckon it could warm up a fair amount later (but maybe perhaps going colder again right at the end of the month).

    At this stage.. 7.6C, 1C above average.

     

    A much more NW/SE split this month and as such drier but still largely a westerly month.

    I'm fed up with calling too low. This is going to end up being one of mildest Marchs on record as I can only see a continuation of the mild wet winter for the first half of March followed by a warm southerly for the second half (here's hoping!). I see nothing cold.

    8.0 C

    I think the mild run of weather will continue, at least until the Summer, when no doubt we will get below average months.

     

    7.8C please
