What’s the weather like in Nice in March?
March is a great time to visit Nice if you want to avoid the Mediterranean heat and prefer a cooler climate on holiday. Nice weather in March is cool and sunny with a few scattered showers throughout the month.
Nice enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate that brings milder temperatures to the region in March. With summer just around the corner, things start to warm up by the time March arrives. There’s still some frequent rainfall, but there’s also more sunshine so you have more time to explore the area during the day. Winds blow in from the north and are channelled by the surrounding mountains that push them in from the east. These winds can be quite cool, which brings temperatures down but can offer a refreshing relief during the intense heat of the summer.
The average daily temperature is around 12°C, which often increases to 15°C in the afternoon. Towards the end of the month, the average high rises to a pleasant 16°C with an average low of 8°C. March is quite a rainy month despite the increase in temperature. There’s around 70mm of rainfall spread over seven days, which means there’s a good chance it’ll rain on your holiday. However, you’ll still have ten hours of Mediterranean sunshine to enjoy per day.
