In spite of all the griping about long winters in these parts, "useful" winter ends pretty much by March. Outdoor skating rinks are no longer maintained starting about mid February. Snow storms are possible, -even likely, but any accumulated snow doesn't last long.
March and to a certain extent April are neither fully winter nor fully spring, - it's a period of climatological purgatory. Could be warm or frigid, snowy or rainy, none of which lasts for long except maybe rain. It's my least favorite time of year weather wise.
I can remember having a few days of 80 degree weather in April followed by a foot of snow less than a week later.
