MCGRATH HAD A UNSEASONABLY WARMER MONTH WITH BELOW AVERAGE PRECIP AND SNOW FALL
FOR THE MONTH...MCGRATH HAD A NEW RECORD HIGH OF 44 DEGREES ON THE 13TH PASSING
THE OLD RECORD OF 40 FROM 2005...WITH ONLY 0.4 INCHES OF PRECIP/SNOW THIS WAS A
LESS THAN AVERAGE MONTH AND ONLY 8 TO 10 DAYS OF CLOUD COVER MADE THE MAJORITY
OF THE MONTH CLEAR WITH TEMPS IN THE LOW TO MID 30 WITH THE OCCASIONAL
40`S...THIS PATTERN LOOKS TO CONTINUE UNTIL THE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK OF APRIL
