Why does March Come in Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb?

Ever heard the old saying, “In like a lion and out like a lamb?” It means that the weather is very cold at the beginning of the month, but the weather is warmer at the end of the month. And it seems very accurate for March weather in the Midwest.

With March, you could have a sunny 75-degree day followed by a snowy 27-degree day. The varying degrees and weather can wreak havoc on your roof. Not to mention the storms that usually follow.

Strong storms can bring heavy rain and can damage your roof leaving you exposed to leaks. Just like a snow storm can do.

If you have snow on your roof and the weather is nice and warm enough to melt the snow, it will run down the roof and into the gutters and away from the house. But if the weather warms up and then cools too quickly, all that water could freeze on your roof, in your gutters and create ice dams that can break your gutters and create leaks into your home and attic.

With varying degrees in temperature, you also get crazy storms with high winds, hail and lightening. This too can cause havoc to your roofs. High winds and hail can carry debris and damage shingles, cause cracks and worse.

When your roof is damaged from varying degrees and storms, like we see in March, it can leave your roof exposed and your roof will no longer be able to protect your home the way it should.
