March 2010 was the wettest March on record for much of southeastern New Hampshire, according to the March 2010 precipitation report released by the Mary Stampone, assistant professor of geography and the New Hampshire State Climatologist.

Precipitation was greatest within southeastern portions of the state with the highest totals and departures recorded near the coast from Rochester south, according to Stampone. March 2010 was the wettest March on record at Epping, Greenland, Portsmouth and Rochester and was the wettest month ever at Epping since records for March began in 1964. Last month was the fifth wettest March at Concord for the period of record 1921-2010 and the sixth wettest at Berlin for the period 1918-2010.
