In March, there will be more sunlight and fewer rainy days, and you’ll feel a bit warm. Early March is when the season starts to shift, so the temperature is comparatively low and you may need to take a muffler or other warm items with you when you leave the house. The temperature will have risen by late March, but you’ll still need a long-sleeved shirt and a light coat. Mornings and evenings see large temperature swings, and windy days will be chilly, so prepare some protection from the elements.
