In like a...out like a...

It's a saying that I learned in childhood.  In like a lion, out like a lamb (or the opposite) can accurately describe the transitional weather in the month of March. I wonder what the originator of that saying would think about the weather on March 1, 2017. The temperature was, warm, like late April or early May with a high in the low 70s and low around 50. That could be described as lamb-like (or maybe lambish or lamby even though they are not recognized as words). Otherwise the day was more like a roaring lion with gale force winds most of the day and occasional heavy rain. It makes me wonder what the rest of the month and the end of the month will be like. For an area that had very little snow, will it be a snowy, icy month, or will Spring stay around. If the theory is true, perhaps March 31 will be chilly but calm.
