March is a transitional month between winter and spring. Its first few days have winter-like weather but promptly March boosts temperatures to the mildly warm pleasant spring weather. A further drop in the humidity to 80% indicates the coming of spring.
The temperatures increase slightly to read between 41°F (5°C) and 53.6°F (12°C) and they only rise towards the end of the month. It takes a prolonged period to feel the temperature increase, but from the middle of the month, March feels moderately warmer as the winds calm down.
The number of rainy days increases to fourteen and the rain gauge collects precipitation of 0.9" (22.9mm) on average. March rains are sudden and may interrupt many Paris tours so packing an emergency umbrella is decisive.
March experiences an average of two hours of sunshine per day, and occasionally crowds basking in the mild sun are observed.
