HAVANA TIMES – March is the month with the least rainfall, with a historical average of 46.2 mm for Havana, therefore it is expected that during these days we will have very little rain, mostly clear skies and hot afternoons. The influence of high pressures will be promoting very weak winds (10-20 km/h) and intense insolation, which will be raising temperatures in the coming days.
Humidity will remain low, mostly below 60%. High temperatures will be between 28 and 31° C (82 and 88 F), while lows will be between 19 and 23° C (66 and 73 F). The sea surface temperature will be 26° C (79 F).
Most of the island is under the influence of a high surface pressure system, which has inhibited clouds and imposed very weak intensity northeast winds. These conditions are forecast to persist throughout the week, although winds may swing to the southeast, holding at very low speeds.
