FILE - In this March 15, 2012, file photo people enjoy the warm weather near the Washington National Monument in Washington. America this year, especially in March, has been so warm that national records aren’t just broken, they are being deep fried. The lower 48 states were 8.6 degrees above normal for March and 6 degrees higher than average for the first three months of the year, according to calculations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, with both March and the first three months of the year far exceeding the country’s old records.
