March is a shoulder season in Singapore. Particularly in 2023, March is the month between two big festivities: Chinese New Year in February 2023 and Hari Raya Puasa in April 2023. There is no public holiday in March 2023. However…
The school holiday in Singapore is taking place from 11 to 19 March 2023. That means, attractions may be more crowded than usual because families are going out to spend quality times with their children.
If you prefer to travel during off-peak period, you can consider avoiding 11 to 19 March.
Singapore’s Weather in March
Early March in Singapore is pretty dry and windy. There will still be hot and rainy days, but most of the time, it’s windy and comfortable.
However, in the late March, Singapore will enter Inter-Monsoon Period. During this time, there will be frequent (and at times severe) thunderstorms in the afternoon and early evening. Despite the thunderstorms, the afternoon temperature will be pretty hot, with maximum temperature above 32°C.
Based on historical data between 1991 to 2020, it rains 12 days out of 31 days. So, it will rain 38% of the month.
I recommend that you bookmark Singapore’s weather website, which is a very useful website to see current rain area & intensity, and to check the rain forecast for the next 4 days.
March’s temperature hovers between 24.9 to 32.2 degrees Celsius (76.8 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit). Generally, the temperature in Singapore doesn’t differ much from month to month.
In March, the sun rises between 7.14am (1 Mar) to 7.05am (31 Mar) and sunset occurs between 7.19pm (1 Mar) to 7.12pm (31 Mar).
