A cold start to March; and a cold start to Spring.
Spring started on 1st March, based on the meteorological calendar. The seasons are defined as Spring (March, April, May), Summer (June, July, August), Autumn (September, October, November) and Winter (December, January, February).
It's feeling way too cold to be Spring, with snow falling this morning.

I think I prefer the 20th March for the official beginning of Spring (astronomical calendar)!
