Here we are at the end of another month and March all set to come in.  Will it come in like a lamb or a lion?

According to the latest forecast, March is set to come in like a lamb.  Expect clouds with a high of 27.

So where did the phrase ‘In like a lamb, out like a lion‘ come from?

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.

Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn’t do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)

Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see warm, spring-like days, or late season blizzards, you can understand how the saying might hold true in some instances.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, some other March related sayings include the following:

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.

March winds and April showers? Bring forth May flowers.

So what will the weather be like for March?  Check out the Almanac forecasts.
