Houston - Recent March Temperatures and Rainfall





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

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many hot or cold days occurred each March. Then there's information on how much rain actually landed this month during recent years, as well as how often Houston had wet weather.
