March is cold to warm at the beginning of the beautiful spring season in Kansas. Western Kansas receives moderate snowfall such as 6.8" (173mm) in Goodland and 5.3" (135mm) in Elkhart. Snowfall is light everywhere else, but there is an uptick in rainfall which averages 2" (51mm) to 3" (76mm) in the state. March has unpredictable weather that sees sunny conditions rapidly changed to cloudy skies with a spell of rain. Day temperatures average in the warm 55°F (12.8°C) to 60°F (15.6°C), while nights stay above the freezing mark. Wichita, in the central region, registers comfortable temperatures between 35°F (1.7°C) to 58°F (14.4°C). Early spring often sees cold fronts, and frosty nights are common. Wildflowers such as bluebells, mallows, and redbuds bloom on the hiking and biking trails that abound the state by the second half of March. Spring brings fresh air, sweet aroma of the soil, and a little wetness along with it. Warm clothes are preferable as Kansas often experience wide temperature fluctuations between day and night.
