Around here, March is one of the craziest months of the year weather-wise. This week alone, our temperatures have ranged between 20 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit! That’s quite a spread. However, it seems several of my peers do not check the weather before heading out, and wind up either wearing an overcoat and winter boots when it’s 70 degrees out or a t-shirt and shorts when the temperature plummeted from 70 to 30 over night.
My advice to you is to always check the weather before leaving your room. This way you will be prepared by dressing appropriately and having the right weather-related gear (such as an umbrella) – even if it’s just in case!
There are several ways to constantly have weather updates. Personally, I use Weather Underground and follow a couple of local news stations on Twitter. If you have a television, there is always the Weather Station (around here, it’s Channel 99). Another good weather website is Weather.com.
No matter how you receive your weather information, be sure to stay up to date to always be prepared!
