destination intro image

What’s the weather like in Toronto in March?

Located in the east of Canada on the shores of Lake Ontario, the city of Toronto has a continental climate with very cold winters and warm summers. In March the weather’s getting warmer after the brisk winter season. It’s still common for temperatures to dip below freezing though, so you’ll need hats, scarves and gloves at this time of year. If you don’t mind the cold and want to avoid the high season crowds, March is a month worth considering for your holiday to Toronto.


The average daytime temperature in March is a cold 1°C, with highs of just 4°C and lows of a freezing -2°C. With such chilly temperatures, you’ll need to take a thick winter coat and plenty of layers for your trip to Toronto. Just 40mm of rain is expected in March, so this month is quite dry with the odd chance of rain or snow showers. Cloud cover is common, while around six hours of sunshine are forecast each day.
