Climate and Clothing
Israel is a geographically diverse country and the weather varies greatly by locale. In March, even the coldest areas of the country, like the Golan Heights and Mount Hermon in the north, begin to warm up and experience a high number of sunny but crisp days. Tel Aviv is pleasant, with temperatures averaging between 60 and 75 degrees F, and Jerusalem is just a few degrees cooler. Southern Israel and the Red Sea coast are sunny and warm both day and night during March.
For the cities, jeans and short-sleeve shirts should be fine and a lightweight jacket for nighttime is a good idea.
