India weather overview
Expect a hot, tropical climate when visiting India with variations from region to region.
If you like temperate conditions, go in the winter when evenings and mornings are cool and crisp and days dry and sunny.
However, this should only be taken as a broad guide to a country where local conditions differ greatly from place to place.
In the Himalayas, winter conditions are cold and wet with heavy snow while mid-summer is unpleasantly hot.
On the northern plains of India, extending from Amritsar in the west to Calcutta in the east, you'll find a climate of extremes.
To the west, (Rajasthan) and northwest of Delhi, desert conditions prevail and summers are drier.
The best time to visit the extreme northeast of India (Assam) is late autumn or spring. At these times, the weather is warm, dry and sunny.
For the entire summer, Assam is a washout, literally, with tumultuous rains making life unbearable.
Take light clothes for the daytime, warmer attire for the evenings and, if you must go in the summer, good waterproofs!
On India's central plateau, temperatures are slightly lower and conditions are, therefore, more pleasant during the hot season. However, the monsoon rains can be intense.
The west coast of India, which includes Mumbai (Bombay) and Goa, consists of a narrow coastal plain rising to steep mountains, the Western Ghats.
In the hot season, conditions can be unbearable unless you go way up into the hills and very heavy monsoon rains fall from June to September. In the southwest, the big rains come earlier and summers are cooler than in the north.
High humidity can make conditions stifling except on the coast where the stickiness is dissipated by sea breezes.
The only relief is to be found in the cooler hill region but, here, winter temperatures can fall very low and warm clothing is recommended.
