What's the temperature like in Krakow during March?

It's cold in Krakow during March. The temperature tops out at around 8℃ during the day, falling away to 1℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water, ice and snow increase UV exposure.

Does it snow in Krakow during March?

Yes, although it doesn't snow as much as you might expect. It's worth checking the local forecast a few days before you leave home so that you can pack appropriate footwear and clothing.

Does it rain in Krakow during March?

On average, there will be 14 rainy days during the month, amounting to 29.3mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. Of course, some of that rain will actually fall as sleet, snow, and possibly freezing rain. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.
