March 2012, as we noted in our online story, certainly is setting new standards for strangeness.
It also has a good shot at becoming the warmest in Philadelphia. At any event, what Ray Kruzdlo at the National Weather Service in Mount Holly says looks like a sure thing: It will finish in the top 3.
Through yesterday the monthly average in Philadelphia stood at 52.4, breathing down the neck of the title-holder, 1921, at 52.5.
As we mentioned, the 80 at 3 p.m. at Philadelphia International Airport is a record for the date.
