It may be hard to believe Monday, with snow in the forecast reminding us how temperamental spring can be, but the month of March was the warmest month on record for many cities across the U.S.
Cities accustomed to lingering snow on the ground throughout March found themselves with unseasonably warm temperatures. From Pittsburgh to Chicago, records were broken. In Denver, New York City and Philadelphia, temperatures didn't quite set a record, but it was close. March was the second warmest month on record for the Mile High City.
Around 7,500 daily record-high temperatures were set in cities last month.
