March sees the arrival of the spring season in Delaware that steadily drives the cold away. The snowfall decreases significantly, but there is a chance of icy precipitation when a cold front invades from the north. The ground remains hard with the sun rays yet to regain full strength. Cycles of thawing and freezing alternate frequently, depending on the snow and sunlight. Day high temperatures are between 50°F (10°C) to 55°F (12.8°C), while the temperatures plummet to the 32°F (0°C) to 37°F (2.8°C) range during the night. Early spring sees an uptick in precipitation with rainfall in the 4" (102mm) to 5" (127mm) range statewide. Cold fronts often strike the region to bring down the temperatures briefly. The blooming of tulips adds to the beauty of the numerous gardens of Delaware. Migrating birds are a feast for the eyes on the trails and ponds. A jacket is a helpful accessory that protects from rain and cold. Expect the sunshine to increase gradually with each passing day in March in Delaware.
