TWENTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 2 f§ 1936 MARCH FIGURES ARE MODERATE 18 Inches of Snow Melted Slowly; No Overflows Resulted. CHARLES CITY--Moderate temperature was the rule in March with no severe cold at any time, B. G. Larson, official weatherman, reported. Only seven days were colder, than normal. There was an average of 18 inches of snow on the ground at the beginning- of the month which, melted rather slowly so that no overflows resulted.- By the fifteenth only patches and drifts remained, Mr. Larson said. When the frost began to come out of the ground during the latter part of the month, it was found that three pipes leading to fire hydrants here and part of a branch water main had frozen and cracked. These pipes were laid at such depth that the ground must have frozen to a depth of at least six feet. Mean Above Normal. The mean temperature for the month was 34 degrees, 3.3 degrees above normal. The highest temperature reached was 71 degrees on the twenty-third, and the lowest was 5 degrees on the sixth. The total precipitation, rain and melted snow, was 3.14 inches, 1.37 inches more than normal. Most of this occurred during the flight of the twenty-second-and twenty-third when 2.25 inches of rain fell from 8:45 p. m., to 5 a. m. It was the heaviest rainfall in * less than 24 hours,, recorded in March, in 46 years of record. The total snowfall was 1.6 inches. Moisture since the beginning of the year 'was 2.60 inches in excess of normal. The relative humidity averaged 82 per cent at 7 a- m., 62 per cent at noon, and 71 per cent at 7 p. m. The lowest observed was 34 per cent at noon on the twentieth. Sunshine Under Normal. The prevailing wind was from the ·west. The average velocity was 9 miles an hour, and the greatest ve locity for a five minute period waf 27 miies an hour from the south west on the twenty-fourth.
