Metric (°C / mm) | Imperial (°F / inches)
Goa is India's smallest state and lies just 15 degrees north of the equator about half way down the west coast of India on the Arabian Sea.
It has a tropical climate with daytime temperatures that vary only by a degree or two from summer to winter. In summer it is hot and wet and in winter, hot and dry.
At this time of year it can rain continuously for days on end and the sea can also become dangerously rough.
The sun is more directly overhead yet the amount of cloud and rain actually prevents daytime temperatures from rising as high as they do in winter.
In terms of temperature expect 30°C on most days falling only 5°C lower to the mid 20s at night.
By November the monsoon has usually subsided and a dry winter season follows when there is less heat and humidity and night-time temperatures are noticeably cooler.
Day time temperatures rise well into the 30s Celsius but drop by a good 12°C at night, while rain is practically unheard of. For obvious reasons this is the high season for tourism.
There is still a lot of sunshine, for example 10 hours in April, but the very high heat and humidity can make it feel uncomfortably hot.
