November is warmer in terms of averages, but March has greater extremes both hot and cold.

Inland areas in Norway have March very similar to Nov.
Coastal areas, facing the sea, have Nov ca 2C warmer (24-hr mean) than March.

Trondheim has Nov only 0.4C (mean) warmer than Nov (61-90). We have had many warm Nov months the last 10 years.
Oslo has Nov 0.9C warmer than March

The only station I could find with Mar warmer than Nov was one inland in the far north and only by a hair.

About the same. March avg high is 66. 64 for November. Low is 44 for both month. February's avg high is 58 while December is 55/56 so I guess late November would be warmer than early March but not by much. There isn't much of a seasonal lag.
November definitely feels cooler.

Since 1991 Helsinki Airport averages 2C in highs during the last week of November, and 0.4C during the first week of March. The data set from Turku is only too short to create an average.

March 1 averages 38/23.
November 30 averages 44/31.

The records in 3/1 are -6 and 83
The records on 11/30 are 1 and 70.

Late November is much warmer.

I'm surprised your record low on March is only 9 F. Conversely, very surprised by 19 F being the record low on November 30 in Western NY.

Yes, that would be surprising. I accidentally had 81-10 as my time period not por as I was getting 1981-2010 averages for the dates.

Records for 3/1 are actually -6 and 83
Records for 11/30 are actually 1 and 70

So more extreme on March 1, but colder averages.

Maritime northern climate, so definitely early spring.

Whoa. Now I'm surprised by the 83 F on March 1.
