Weather in India


India's vast terrain makes for a variety of climatic conditions, ranging from snowfalls in high mountainous regions to humid and tropical coastal regions. Generally, expats who relocate to India will experience pleasant and warm weather during the months of October to March when it is cool and dry. Depending on the location, however, the weather can be scorchingly hot during the summer months and it’s wise to make sure accommodation has adequate air conditioning and a nearby swimming pool. 
India experiences its monsoon and rainy season from June to September; the rains normally come to the south of India during late May or early June and reach the northern parts of the country about six weeks later. Monsoon rains begin to recede from northern India at the beginning of October. The rain is normally heaviest in the south.
