People Call Weather "Hot, Hot, Hot!"
COLUMBIA - Monday's record setting temperature kept people out of the parks and inside.
One user of the Forum MKT Fitness Trail said she has been using the trail almost every day for the past twenty years and said it is unusual having to deal with the heat so early in the year. To stay cool Monday, Betty Wetmore wore her swimsuit to go jogging and made sure to bring her waterbottle with her. Wetmore says there are usually more people on the trail this time of year.
This March was the warmest on record. The monthly average was 59.7 degrees. The previous record was 56 degrees in 1946. There were five record high minimum temperatures and three record high temperatures during March.
