If March Comes In Like A Lion, It’ll Go Out Like A Lamb. Any Truth To That?

Easter Sunday is the last day of the month.  So far, the forecast looks pretty uneventful for the end of March and the beginning of April.  You’ve heard the saying “If March comes in like a lion, it’ll go out like a lamb.”  Is there any truth to that or is it simply folklore?I turned to the Farmer’s Almanac for some answers.  People used to believe spirits controlled the weather and bad weather was caused by bad spirits. People  thought there should be a balance in life, so if a month came in bad  like a lion, that meant it should go out calm, like a lamb.  Hence that popular saying.  No doubt March weather can be unpredictable.  Sometimes it brings spring temps earlier and sometimes it’s more like  late season snow.  Either way, if March comes in like a lion, it doesn’t mean it will go out like a lamb.  It’s simply a saying and not a true predictor of weather.  Ready for some other March weather folklore?  These are courtesy of the Farmer’s Almanac.

March winds and April showers?  Bring forth May flowers.

A dry March and a wet May?  Fill barns and bays with corn and hay.

As it rains in March so it rains in June.

The Farmer’s Almanac predicts both April and May bill be warmer and drier than normal.  Also, the first half of April is predicted to be especially warm.   I’m ready for it.  Are you?
