Predictions for March and April?

Any old-timers out there willing to predict weather for March and April this year(2019)?

Last year March was a surprise for many and even early April was a wee bit colder than norm.

I´ll stick my neck out and predict slightly above average temp wise with normal sunshine rates. :) :? :?:

Your first post here, that I can recall, asked us when spring was going to arrive. You’ve obviously got that sorted out. You must tell the rest of us.

If one were to drive to Andorra in late march or early April what road conditions would be expected. Wondering mostly if snow and ice would be a problem that time of year (in an average year!).

Thanks in advance,
