Paris weather in Mid to late March, what kind of jacket???

Jump to last reply

I'm sure this topic has been handled before but I feel like I need a different set of opinions due to my crazy temperature issues. We'll be in Paris this year from the 15th to the 25th of March. I'm wondering what kind of jacket to bring, if any, for a hormonal woman who always runs *H*O*T* ???? We were in Rome over Christmas last year and in the morning it was about 40 degrees and I took my jacket off and wore only a thin long sleeved tshirt and although I was a little chilly I felt just fine. Part of the problem is that in Europe places tend to be overly stuffy IMO when it's chilly out. Then of course when it's warmer out there's the lack of AC in many places. I'm from Arizona where they run AC all year in the shops and restaurants even in the winter.

I've looked at the averages online for that time of year, but those never seem to be right and never seem to take into consideration whether a region is having a "warm winter" a "cold summer" etc.

So the question is, what kind of weather can I expect, and what kind of jacket would be recommended for someone who runs warm???? A light trench coat? Nylon rain coat? No coat at all and a cardigan?
