The March 2016 climate summaries for Big Piney, Buffalo, Casper, Greybull, Lake Yellowstone, Lander, Riverton, Rock Springs, and Worland are now available online.

March started warm and dry across western and central Wyoming, with only one significant storm affecting the state through the first week of the month. This trend changed by the middle of the month, when several storms brought cooler temperatures and much needed precipitation. This was punctuated by a potent storm during the last week of March which brought copius amounts of moisture to most of the state. This directly raised the mothly precipitation amounts into one of the wettest March's on record.
