March (
New!: Daylight Saving Time Begins, March Madness Final Four, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Break, Open House of new homes, MLB Spring Training)

In March, usually there are no more sub-zero (F) temperatures in Minnesota. Spring is just around the corner for southern states while for northern states like Minnesota, spring arrives in May. March is not as cold as December, January and February although we usually have a lot of wet snow in March. Good news is that the sun gets higher and the days get longer even in northern states.
