According to NOAA, the average temperature across the U.S. was 8.6 degrees above the 20th century average.

However, the report did not just reveal that certain parts of the U.S. had unseasonable warmth; no region was exempt from the weather anomalies.

Every state in the nation experienced at least one record warm daily temperature in March, totaling 15,272 warm temperature records broken.

The Northeast had its warmest March in 118 years this year, averaging 44.4 degrees F, 9.8 degrees above the average for the region.
