Boston - Recent March Temperatures, Rain & Snow





The numbers here describe what the March weather in Boston, Massachusetts was like for every year since 2010. A series of tables gives March data by year for temperature, precipitation and snowfall.

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many days dropped below freezing each March.
