What’s the weather like in California in March?

The sunshine state of California is located on the USA’s West Coast, with a Mediterranean-style climate bringing long, warm summers and cool, wet winters to the region. In March the weather’s mild, bright and sometimes showery, so if you don’t mind cooler temperatures and want to avoid the high season crowds, this may be a good month to visit.


In March, the coastal city of Los Angeles has an average temperature of 14°C, with highs of a mild 19°C and lows of 9°C at night. Around 70mm of rain is expected during the month, so it’s worth bringing a waterproof jacket in case of showers. Further north in San Francisco, the average temperature is a few degrees cooler at 11°C, with highs of 16°C and lows of 9°C. The city sees around 80mm of rain at this time of year, over the course of ten wet days.
