March  Weather:
- Average High: 50°F (10°C) - Average Low: 35°F (2°C)
- March tends to be rainy, but for the most part, temperatures stay above freezing

What to Wear:

  • Pack an umbrella -- you'll be happy to have it when it starts to rain. Don't fret if you forget one though, because as soon as it starts to rain you'll find you can buy one on every street corner for $5 or so.
  • A waterproof jacket or trench coat is recommended -- while umbrellas are helpful, nothing compares with a good raincoat. In a pinch you can pick up a poncho at any NYC drug store (i.e. CVS, Duane Reade, Rite Aid) and while you're unlikely to win any fashion contests wearing one, you can toss it when the rain is done and it will keep your backpack or purse covered as well. A few years ago I discovered the virtues of a rain hat -- I love how it keeps my head dry without the hassle of an umbrella.
  • Pack sweaters and long pants to wear -- it can be cool, particularly at night and when it's wet, it feels even colder.
  • Closed toe shoes, comfortable for walking and water-resistant if possible.

March Perks:

  • cooler weather continues to make bargain accommodations and flights to New York City available
  • March is typically less crowded than April and May
  • St Patrick's Day is celebrated enthusiastically by New Yorkers of every persuasion, with Irish pubs being quite crowded on March 17. The parade itself is
  • less likely to have travel troubles due to snow than in January and February
  • the Easter Parade is a great chance to have an "only in New York" experience

In March you can get some beautiful spring weather if you're lucky, but it can also be rainy and cold -- it's a very temperamental month weather-wise in New York City.
