The weather in India varies considerably by region. The south can get very hot, whereas there is sometimes snowfall in the north. Temperatures follow a seasonal pattern of cooler winters and hot summers.

India’s monsoon season begins in June and lasts until September, meaning the summer is wet and hot – especially in the tropical south.

Thanks to the country’s size, the weather differs from region to region – Rajasthan is the hottest state.

The figures show Mumbai’s average temperature and rainfall. It’s best to check the weather at your destination for an accurate weather forecast before you fly.
