The weather in Bermuda during March averages about 69 degrees Fahrenheit and four inches of rain.

Temperatures and rainfall in March are nearly the same as January and February. Even so, the island has more overnight tourism visitors in March than the three previous months, the Caribbean Tourism Organization reports. March is often the time for spring break from schools.

These three months are the coolest of the year for the British overseas territory that lies about 450 miles east of North Carolina.

Although the island is north of the Caribbean, it often is included in descriptions of Caribbean vacations because of many similarities. One exception is the cooler weather.

Temperatures in March

The average high temperature in March is 69 degrees Fahrenheit or about 21 Celsius, according to historical data from the Bermuda Weather Service.

The average low temperature is 60 Fahrenheit or about 16 Celsius. Water temperatures hover between the high and low air temperatures. They are too cool for swimming, which makes Bermuda a land vacation in March rather than water vacation.

The island is much warmer during the summer months of June through September. The peak is August with an average high of 85 Fahrenheit or 30 Celsius. It's the best time to go for the island's famous pink sand beaches and ocean swimming.

Rainfall in March

Bermuda does not have an extreme rainy season or dry season like many Caribbean islands. It rains on average between three and six inches a month. October has the most rain, followed by September and August.

Bermuda rain in March historically averages about 4.3 inches, the Bermuda Weather Service says. It is the lowest amount of the year except for April and May. They are better months for visiting because of higher temperatures and lower risk of rain.

It rains on average 15 days during the month, so the typical visitor may experience rain about once every other day.
