Washington Weather in March

destination intro image

What’s the weather like in Washington in March?

Washington is the capital of the United States, located in the east of the country, not far from the Atlantic coast. It has a continental climate which brings hot summers and cool winters to the city, along with humid conditions all year round. The city leaves behind its freezing temperatures in March, and things are getting warmer as spring begins. There’s a similar amount of rain this month to the rest of the year, so it’s a good idea to come prepared for showers whenever you visit Washington.


In March, the average temperature in Washington is 9ºC, reaching highs of 15ºC in the warmest part of the afternoon. You’ll need plenty of warm layers for evenings out in the city, as temperatures dip to a chilly low of 3ºC after dark. You’ll also need a waterproof jacket or umbrella for when you’re sightseeing, as 85mm of rain’s expected over the course of ten wet days in March.
