The county’s capital city, New Delhi, has a sub-tropical climate. Its altitude and distance from the sea gives this metropolitan an extreme climate with very hot summers and very chilly winters. The temperature ranges from a scorching 45º Celsius in the summers to around 4º Celsius in the winters.

Summer in Delhi is extreme with the temperature ranging between 25º Celsius to 46º Celsius.  The average temperature is 32º Celsius. The heat waves referred to as the ‘Loo’, that blow from the country’s desert state of Rajasthan further adds to the city’s soaring temperature. Summer starts as early as early April and continues almost till September, with May and June being the hottest months.

The arrival of monsoon does bring some respite to the Delhi. The city experiences monsoon between the months of July to September. The monsoon in Delhi however does not last long and is unpredictable. The average annual rainfall in the city is 797.3 mm, and the temperature during this time ranges between 25º to 32º Celsius with an average of 29º Celsius. The post-monsoon season continues till October, and during this time the weather is pleasant with clear skies and a reducing temperature. During this time the temperature comes down to a comfortable 21º Celsius.

Winter starts around middle of November and continues till March.  The winter months in Delhi are characterized by foggy morning and chilly nights. The cold waves that blow from the Himalayas in the north add to the chill and further dips the temperature. The average winter temperatures in the city is around 12o to 13o Celsius. The temperatures often go down to 3o to 4º Celsius when winter is at its peak, and during this time the city often has to face the problem of dense fog. However, in spite of the cold, one can enjoy the winter days which are often pleasant and sunny in the late afternoons.

The best season to visit Delhi is during the months of February to April and August to November, during which the temperatures are comfortable and the skies are clear. The months of February and March bring in the spring season during which Delhi remains green all around.
