Quite a few outside festive events are held during this month as the Melbourne weather in March produces just that right balance of conditions.

Events such as...

KISS and Kimi Raikkonen, Formula 1 World Championship

Melbourne, Australia 2008

Melbourne is in fine spirits as the weather is mild, the sun is warm yet not too hot and there is the promise of fine weather throughout the day.

The climate in Melbourne is greatly affected by its position. There are hot inland areas, as well as the considerably cooler southern ocean.

Cold fronts can often form and this can result in occasional downpours of rain.

There is a possibility of thunderstorms and these can sometimes be accompanied with hail - big hail!

6 March 2010 - Storms pass directly over Melbourne bringing large hail, flash flooding and high winds, causing widespread damage across western and central Victoria, stopping all modes of transportation in Melbourne. CBD streets of Flinders, Spencer and Elizabeth were spectacularly flash flooded.

The best thing to do is be prepared for all contingencies.

Melbourne weather forecasts are usually quite accurate and if it is predicted that there will be rain then there usually is.

Hail is rare so do take care and watch the forecast.

It can be quite heavy as you can see from the video above but most times the hail stones are small and do little damage.

Enjoy the warm and balmy nights, perhaps a carriage ride in the city with the family or maybe a tramcar restaurant meal.

Melbourne weather in March is superb and the city at night is such a pretty sight.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
