What’s the weather like in Greece in March?
Greece is in Southeast Europe, which means most of the country has Mediterranean weather. It has nearly 14,000km of coastline, and borders the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean Sea. You’ll find that most of Greece’s popular holiday destinations are warming up in March after the mild winter. The amount of rain’s also reducing as spring starts. Much of Greece is mountainous and hilly, and the Pindus Mountains in the north mean you’ll see more rain in the west than the east, and less wet weather in the south. This is where Greece’s famous islands are.
The average high in southern Athens is 17ºC in March, so it’s starting to get nice and warm. Things are still quite cool in the evenings though, which cool to 7ºC. The sea temperature is 15ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 41mm of rain over eight days, and you can expect 12 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day and moderate UV levels. Sunset’s around 6.30pm for most of March. This is pushed back to a nice and late 7.45pm towards the end of the month because of daylight saving.
