Weather details in march

March is one of the driest months of the year, although the rains continue to show. Indeed, given the oceanic influence of its climate, the rains are inseparable from the weather in New Zealand throughout March. In addition, the weather is cooling and temperatures rarely exceed 22° C. Despite this freshness, climatic conditions are still suitable for outdoor activities, thanks to the gentle presence of the sun.

March in the North of North Island

In the gentle and beautiful mornings succeed superb middays that are enhanced by rather high temperatures. These values make it possible to feel comfort without having to encumber warm clothes. Even if the cloudy weather and the rainy season take place throughout the month and compete with the beautiful sunny days.

March in the South of North Island

In comparison with the climatic conditions of the north of the island, those of the South are distinguished by the low humidity. Thus, the rains are rarer allowing the beautiful sun to reign over the weather throughout March in New Zealand. As the weather gradually cools, temperatures stagnate around 19° C at the best time of day.

March on the South Coast and the West Coast of South Island

Despite the frequent showers, the beautiful sunny days and mild temperatures still define the climate throughout March in New Zealand in the south of the island. Therefore, the wearing of warm clothes becomes essential to feel comfort and especially to be able to fully appreciate the beautiful sun in good conditions.

March on the East Coast of South Island

Climatic conditions on the east coast of the South Island are relatively pleasant. Of course, the mornings are cool with temperatures as low as 10° C, but the days are superb - especially as the sun continues to brighten them one after the other. The localities in the eastern part of the island are the least wet in the South Island.

Good news: It is not ideal 100%, but the weather in New Zealand that month is pretty good in Tauranga, Nelson, Auckland, Hokitika, Christchurch, Hamilton, Rotorua and Wellington. I allows to enjoy tour in these cities. And even why not take a little time to enjoy the hotel pool!
