March came roaring in like a lion

March came roaring in like a lion with winds and snow. Does that mean it could go out good and calm like a lamb?

Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see warm, spring-like days, or late season blizzards, you can understand how the saying "in like a lion out like a lamb" might hold true a lot of the time.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, some other March related sayings include the following:
  • A dry March and a wet May? Fill barns and bays with corn and hay.
  • As it rains in March so it rains in June.
  • March winds and April showers? Bring forth May flowers.
