Need help with the Polish idiom about the weather in March

I don't remember it, but it means something like March is like a pot, meaning we can have anything. In Polish, I think it's like in March like in a pot. Can you help?

It means you can have all kind of weather in March

You got it right,it means that that March is like a pot with all kinds of weather.Have you ever heard similar one about April?

W marcu jak w garncu. A w maju jak w gaju.

Maybe up north they say "po" in central PL it's "co".Trust me.Funny,there was already a Brit here (Seanus,btw what's up with him?) trying to teach me Polish and now an American.Maybe I should start lecturing Brits and Americans about English?

'Po' has no sense here. If any correction, it should be 'bo'. And indeed, I've always known this proverb as such:

Kwiecień plecień, bo przeplata
trochę zimy, trochę lata.

Well, in this example "bo" and "co" have both pretty much the same meaning.

grubas, i wasn't trying to teach you Polish. I'm not that presumptuous. I was just telling you what my students told me. As you suggested, maybe it's a regional thing. I sure don't know.

And Ziemowit, I see what you're getting at. Hey guys, I'm just trying to learn.
