Seriously people, if you can't go one day, ONE day without predicting doom, then you really don't have much of a life.
MARCH 2011: temperature 33 ° (2 ° above avg. north, 2 ° below south); precipitation 1" (2" below avg.); Mar 1-4: Sunny, cool; Mar 5-10: Snow, then sunny, cool; Mar 11-15: Rainy periods, mild; Mar 16-22: Rain to snow, turning cold; Mar 23-28: Snow showers, then sunny, seasonable; Mar 29-31: Sprinkles, mild.
If you look at the storm events that happen at tidal peaks, you will see that the nature of the event depends on the time of the year when it occurs. Peaks in Sept and Oct favor hurricanes in the Atlantic, while peaks near the first of the year favor winter storms. In 2011 the tides peak on March 19, which is very near the equinox, so you have a good a chance of seeing tornadoes in Birmingham, as you do of seeing a winter storm, but because of what has happened before, I am expecting a late snow storm.
