What do they say about March? Is it "in like a lion, out like a lamb" or "in like a lamb out like a lion"?


Answer by  Charlotte (76)

March is "in like a lion, out like a lamb". The average temperature at the beginning of March is winter-like and the average temperature at the end of March is spring-like. Thus, the ferocity of a lion (cold winter) vs. the gentleness of a lamb (mild, spring weather).

Actually, they say either. The phrase refers to an old weather axiom that suggested that if march started out nice it would end bad, if it started out with poor weather it would become nice by the end. It couldn't fail, one end had to be better than the other.

March is in like a lion and out like a lamb. This is because it starts with bad, roary, loud weather and ends with fair weather. Lion and the lamb.
