Daylight Hours

Just like the previous months and the months to come, March is characterised by an essentially constant length of the dayshis is due to the resort's location near the equator. The length of the days ranges between 11.55 daylight hours in the beginning of the month and 12.12 hours of daylight at the end.


The clearer part of the year runs toward its end in the course of March, as the skies tend to get cloudier. Cloud cover increases noticeably throughout the month, from 35% to 44%.


This increasing cloud cover brings with it more rainfall compared to January and February. There is now a total amount of rainfall of 40mm, which is spread out over 5 days with rainfall. March is, however, still the third driest month of the year. The probability that rainfall will be observed on any given day increases dramatically in the course of March, though. March 1 is the driest day of the month with a chance of rainfall of 14%; March 31 is the wettest day with a 33% chance that it will rain.

The most common type of precipitation, by far, is thunderstorms. They occur on no less than 75% of the days with rainfall. Other possible, but far less likely, types of rainfall are moderate rain, drizzle and light rain, respectively falling on 15%, 7% and 3% of the rainy days.


Also because of the cloudier skies, the amount of sunshine will be less, especially compared with the sunny winter months. March, however, has 8 hours of sunshine per day on average, only one hour fewer than February and the same number as in April. March is a pretty sunny month for a tropical place like Kerala.
