What's the weather like in Budapest in March

March marks the start of spring in BudapestHungary, and features rapidly rising temperatures. After the extreme cold of DecemberJanuary and February, the city wakes up from its winter sleep and starts receiving more and more tourists. The weather turns pleasant during the day, but the nights are still a little chilly and there is the occasional rain shower.


The average maximum temperature during day is an almost pleasant 10°C, but the average minimum nighttime temperature remains cold at 2°C. Both high and low temperatures increase drastically in the course of the month, though, respectively from 7°C to 14°C and from -1°C to 3°C. The overall average temperature is 6°C, making March the fifth coldest month of the year, after the three previous winter months and November.


When it comes to rainfall, March is no exception by any means. Every month receives its share of rainfall and so does March. The total amount of precipitation is around 40mm and there are 11 days with precipitation. The possibility that rainfall occurs on any given day in March varies very little in the course of the month and ranges around 51%. Unlike the previous snowy months, however, March's precipitation statistics aren't dominated by snow, but by rain. Moderate rain is the most common type of precipitation, observed on 37% of all days with precipitation. Light rain comes in second and happens on 23% of the rainy days. It does still snow, though, and moderate snow and light snow occur on 18% and 14% of the days with precipitation respectively. The chance of snowfall decreases greatly in the course of the month, from 24% to 10%.

Sunshine Hours

The average sunshine hours total 9 per day, a two-hour increase compared with the three previous months. This increase in sunshine is due to two factors. The first one is the slight decrease in cloud coverrom 87% to 82% in the course of the month. The second one is the gradual lengthening of the days. March 1 is the shortest day of the month with 11.05 daylight hours; March 31 is the longest day with 12.48 hours of daylight.
