Winter: December, January, February, March
While this is coolest time of the year to visit, it’s also the most comfortable. The days can reach upwards of 70˚F but can go low into the 40˚F’s. This is when its best to bring layers so you can easily adjust to the weather changes. Nights will be cooler, so light jackets will be key with hoodies or sweatshirts.
Summer: April, May, June
Be prepared to drink lots of water as this heat is intense. With temperatures ranging between 80˚F and 100˚F, these are the hottest months to visit New Delhi and can be quite dangerous. With sunstroke and dehydration affecting many travelers, it’s best to pack light and breathable clothing that can keep you cool but also protect you from the sun. Please remember your sun hats!
Monsoon: July, August, September
You guessed it, monsoon season can not only be very wet, but very hot too. Temperatures will range between 80°F to 94°F and whilst that is hot, it’s the humidity that will get you. If you visit during this season, bring lots of rain gear, especially an umbrella and rain jacket.
Fall: October, November
This shorter season offers a bit of relief after the hot and humid months where the daily averages range between 60˚F and 90˚F. The days have a cool breeze to them, and this is where layering is again important. You will want a light jacket for evenings and during the day breathable or cool clothing pieces.
