ST. CLOUD — March proved to be more like a lion than a lamb when it comes to weather.

The snowfall totals are in and results show that March 2013 was the 9th snowiest on record.

A total of 16.6 inches of snow fell in St. Cloud. That total is more than 8 inches above normal.

Snow wasn’t the only issue, average temperatures last month were also 20 degrees colder than the previous year.

March’s temperature of 21.9  degrees is over 7 degrees lower than the average of 29.4.

The large snowfall totals are also causing flooding concerns for some areas in central Minnesota.

Land along the Mississippi River in St. Cloud could see additional flooding. But the majority of central Minnesota is at an average risk of spring floods.
