Global warming keeps its grip of Germany: March will probably end up being coldest since records began in the 1880s

Global warming continues to keep its grip on Germany. This March will most likely end up as the coldest in northern Germany since records began in the 1880s:

The average temperature in the northern German states of Berlin, Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt has been minus 2 degrees Celsius (28.4 degrees Fahrenheit) this month. If Jack Frost doesn't head back to Siberia soon, this March could break the record established in 1883, two years after records began. For Germany as a whole, the month will likely end up as the coldest March in 25 years.
Surely, one might think, spring is just around the corner? Not so, say meteorologists. The Easter Bunny will find himself confronted with snow and sleet in northern Germany on Sunday. And there is no improvement in sight.

In case you are interested, Der Spiegel has a nice photo gallery, called Dreaming of a White Easter.

I'll be interested to see how March turns out for the UK and how it will be explained.
