March is cold in Ohio as the cloudy state welcomes the short spring season by the second half of the month. The average high temperatures are in the zone of 45°F (7.2°C) to 59°F (15°C), while the average low temperatures are between 27°F (-2.8°C) to 34°F (1.1°C). Precipitation sees a slight uptick, but there is a decrease in snowfall. Snowfall moderates in the north between 4" (102mm) to 8" (203mm) and is light in the south by the end of March. Cleveland in the north registers cold temperatures between 30°F (-1.1°C) to 47°F (8.3°C), while Cincinnati in the south is relatively warmer between 33°F (0.6°C) to 55°F (12.8°C). The spring season is unpredictable, with a combination of sudden rain, a cold wave, bright sunny days, or even a snowstorm. Bright colors and shiny rainbows are generally missing, although there are occasional chirpings of birds and sounds of animals. The 5 hours of sunshine is weak and does not melt the snow cover entirely. Temperatures improve significantly by the end of March in Ohio.
