Mean monthly temperature comparison - March 2013 (left) vs March 2012 (right)
The above maps show the incredible difference between this March (left) and March 2012 (right). In 2012 an exceptionally large area of anomalously warm temperatures was found over the central US into central and eastern Canada (including southern MB) which experienced its warmest March on record. In contrast, March 2013 has experienced anomalously cold weather in generally the same area. See weather historian Chris Burt's blog entry for more details on the major flip between this March and last year.
