Weather end of March

Hi guys

Can anyone give me an idea of how warm and what sort of clothes I should bring to wear in March please?

Now us Brits will want to get our shorts on with the first sight of sun (it is so cold and grey here!) but realistically are we talking jeans and tshirts or shorts?

Last time we visited it was June and it was 43 degrees we hated it, far too hot! I am hoping it will be pleasant this time.

Thanks

The end of March could go either way. When I've been in March, the days were a little cool, light jacket but the nights were very chilly. I'm sure some people will be wearing shorts regardless. Check the weather ahead before you start to pack.

My UK relatives come often in March. Most of the time I am in sweaters, they are swimming! Pack layers and throw in a pair of shorts and your swim suit. More than likely, unless it rains you will find it nice.

Check out wunderground.com - it tells you past weather and average temperatures, etc. Very neat.

Your best bet will be to a website such as the weather channel as the time draws near. It should be rather pleasant at that time, but there is no guarantee. We've been in April and hit a cold spell that had us reaching for cover-ups. Checking the weather channel, I see the average high (in Fahrenheit not Celsius) for March is 69 and low is 47 with a record high of 96 and record low of 16.

The smart thing to do is bring clothes that you can layer. I always find the casino floors to be cold, so have a sweater or light jacket with me year round.

For "normal" people, late March is hit or miss. You'll have pool weather one day, then it's too cold the next. On those cold days, there will be 10 people at the pool. They will all be Brits. You guys seem to have very different ideas as to what constitutes pool weather.

Bring shorts, plan to be at the pool, but bring sweathshirts or extra layers too. 3

The temps can be all over the place and what it is like one year has nothing to do with what it is like any other year. For example- the 21st, 2004- the high was 92. The 21st, 2006- the high was....51. That is how much the temps can vary year to year.

The average high- low 70s with a range from the 40s to the 90s. If it is cloudy / windy- it can feel colder than the temps would indicate. Average low- around 50 with a range from the 30s to the 60s. You will just have to check a weather site just before leaving to get a better idea of what the temps will be like during your visit- but the forecast can change once you are there.

Think layers- tops with short/long sleeves, a sweater and a jacket. With those- you will be prepared for any kind of weather without having to bring a whole lot of different clothes. Some years I have been able to swim in March, other years I was only able to sunbathe/use the Jacuzzi and still other years it was so cool/cloudy/windy- I could not do any of those things. Bring a bathing suit.

It is hard to predict how you or anyone else will react to the temps. On my last trip- I wore a sweater during the day (highs mid 50/low 60s), but some people were in shorts and others wore a winter coat.

Thanks everyone really helpful comments. I think you are all right and layering will be the key. I think I will bring warm ish clothes for the evening.

Our idea of pool weather is down to having such rubbish summers here that any hint of a slightly warm day and we are in the pool "making the most of it"! Even some March days will probably be as warm as our summer!
