    Delhi - Climate & Seasons

    The city has an extreme climate. December and January are chilly with night times lows of 4 °C. The city has spring months in February and March. The summer months of May & June are scorchingly hot with mercury soaring to a high of 46 °C. The city does not have much of rainy season. The monsoon lasts from July to September.

    The climate of Delhi isnt much to write home about. When planning a trip remember that the city is best in winter and in its fleeting spring. About 160 kilometres south of the Himalayas Delhi feels every chilly blast that lashes the snowcapped mountains. While heat-oriented Delhiites find the winter a bit trying, foreigners seem to revel in temperatures ranging from 3*C to 21*C. The season is marked with light rainfall, frosty winds and an all-enveloping fog.

    But the cold months of December-February soon give way to the balmy month of March. Birds sing out a full-throated welcome to Basant Bahar (the bloom of spring) as fresh grass and blossoms burst forth and trees sprout shiny new coats. Sometimes, when Delhiites are in luck, the spring gets an extra lease of life and tarries till mid-April.

    Hot on its heels comes May which turns Delhi into a scalding charcoal tandoor (a large round clay oven). Thanks to its distance from the sea, Delhi bears the brunt of an extreme type of continental climate. The summer consequently is as hot as the winter is cold. The mercury, itself in danger of dehydration, soars to 47*C. One has to be carefully prepared before venturing out as heat strokes and dehydration are the order of the day. Violent dust storms and hot winds locally dubbed loo are part and parcel of the hot and dry Delhi summer.
     
     

    The cruel onslaught of summer is cut short with the advent of the monsoon (moisture bearing winds) in early July. The monsoon, of course, is never known to have arrived when it is expected its either late, early or whimsically decides to just skip Delhi. It provides the city much-needed succour. The parched ground, plants, animals and people greedily soak up the moisture for the next two months as the temperature dips down to a bearable 30-something. September though hot, is not dry but humid. In October the days become cooler and with November Delhi is very much in the arms of winter again.
