March cold and dry across Illinois

   CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Illinois' climatologist says winter continue continued to hang on in the state through most of March with colder-than-usual temperatures.
   But climatologist Jim Angel said Tuesday the month was also drier than usual.
   According to Angel, the statewide average temperature in March was 33.8 degrees. That's 7 degrees below average and the eighth coldest March on record for Illinois.
   March proved to be a continuation of Illinois' harsh winter. It was the fifth straight month of below-average temperatures.
   But the month was the 11th driest month on record with just 1.49 inches of precipitation falling on average around the state. That's exactly half of the typical March precipitation.
   But Angel said some spots still had heavy snow. Mendota led the state with 17.9 inches.
