Snowy March for 2018 in Greenville, Maine. Looking for snow in March? You will find plenty here in Moosehead Lake Region of Maine. February warm up came too early and wondered if it would be an early Spring in Maine. Well, March came in like a lion, and several Nor’Easters hit New England states with high winds, snow and rain.

Add that to the 14 inches of snow that fell over the last few days and thats 2 feet plus of snow in March.
