It may be very cold for March standards, but the sun angle is now higher in the sky. When you get more direct sunlight, it can transfer more energy and melt the snow quicker. This will help melt the snow even on a chilly day. Sunshine in March is equivalent to the sun angle in early October. The sun angle in months like December, and January, are lower which will make it harder to melt the snow.
