Weather in March

March begins the spring season in Minnesota, with the nights still below freezing temperatures. The rainfall increases slightly, but the snowfall is heavy in the range of 8" (203mm) to 10" (254mm) in the state. Drizzles are frequent during the day, and mornings are misty in the forests.
The daily sunshine is mild in intensity and lasts for 5 to 6 hours during the early part of spring. The average high temperatures are typically in the mild 34°F (1.1°C) to 45°F (7.2°C) range, while the nights are below freezing between 8°F (-13.3°C) to 26°F (-3.3°C). Gunflint Lake in the northeast is severely cold between 8°F (-13.3°C) to 34°F (1.1°C), while Moorhead in the northwest averages between 19°F (-7.2°C) to 36°F (2.2°C). Chilly winds accompany the frequent cold fronts, especially in the northern highlands.
Green shoots occur in patches in many places in the south, but fresh snow keeps the ground partly white. The conditions are decisively cold side and hardly suitable for outdoor activities. Expect a gradual rise in temperatures by the end of March in Minnesota.
