Daniel Swain in Mendocino Beacon—The California chill: State recorded fifth-coldest March in 129 years amid storms, snow

Last year’s March was the 11th warmest in the 129 years of record keeping.

Daniel Swain, a climate scientist at UCLA, posted Monday on Twitter that “a few regions of Northern California just experienced their coldest March on record.”

The year-over-year change is “highly remarkable given the sustained long-term warming trend,” Swain tweeted. Two of California’s warmest three Marches since 1895 happened in the last 20 years.
