Weather in March

March sees the transition from the winter to the spring season in Alaska with cold temperatures and a significant increase in daily sunshine hours. Temperatures average in the freezing range of 4°F (-15.6°C) to 21°F (-6.1°C) in the state. Anchorage in the southcentral region registers between 19°F (-7.2°C) to 35°F (1.7°C), while Nome in the northwest is between 2°F (-16.7°C) to 19°F (-7.2°C). The sea is frigid in the north, with temperatures below 28°F (-2.2°C).
The mountainous area of Mount McKinley accumulates vast amounts of snow and maintains a permanent snowline. March registers an average of 32" (813mm) of snow but sees the precipitation drop to 2.2" (56mm). Glaciers form a significant source of fresh water in the state.
Late March is the usual date of arrival of the spring season, which awakens flora and fauna of the land. Hibernating animals slowly rise from their winter slumber to feed upon the replenished stores of fresh food. Hunting, fishing, and wildlife watching are few of the popular attractions in Alaska that gain traction in March.
