Weather in March?


We are planning to come up to Palm Cove in March next year.. I’m just a little concerned about the weather as we have been advised that it will still wet season.. is someone able to shed some light on what the weather has been like in March in the past.. Should we prepare for rain for most of our holiday..?

Yes expect rain but it will not ruin your trip. Short tropical showers

We can never really predict what the weather will do. I don't think you can rely on the rain being limited to short tropial showers.

Cyclones Larry and Monica struck in March. Cyclone Larry made a heck of a mess but it didn't rain very much afterwards, Cyclone Monica struck two weeks later and while it was a smaller cyclone it dumped a phenominal amount of rain as it poured for weeks afterwards.

Personally I like it when it rains up here as the rain is warm, the humidity feels less oppressive and low clouds provide a bit of an etherial air to our mountains.

You can still go and do things or you can enjoy staying in - which ever is your preferred mode of holiday enjoyment. I think all you will need is an open mind about how to spend your days.
