Weather in India can be divided into four seasons: winter from January to February, summer runs from March to May, the monsoon or rainy season from June to September and the post-monsoon season is from October to December.
India has a tropical monsoon climate. The Himalayan Mountains form a protective barrier preventing the cold winds of North Asia from entering India which stops severely cold winters. Weather is heavily dependent on location as temperatures can differ by state.
Winter in Chennai and Calicut can reach average temperatures of around 25˚C (77˚F), while the northern plains average between 10-15˚C (50-59˚F). In the summer, Central India can experience temperatures ranging from 40-45˚C (104-113˚F), while Peninsular India can reach between 26-32˚C (78.8-89.6˚F).
Late May sees the beginnings of the monsoon season as humidity levels rise. By July, the Southwest Monsoon has most of the country covered in rain. (It doesn’t rain all day, but may rain heavily for a period each day, and is usually followed by sunshine). The Northeast Monsoon is short, but intense and hits the coast between November and December.
