Weather in Delhi

New Delhi has a humid subtropical climate influenced by monsoon winds so expect distinct summers and winters.

Spring (February to March) is short and marked by warm days and cool nights. With temperatures hovering around 24°C (75°F) to 29°C (84°F), this is a good time to visit New Delhi.

Summer (April to September) is long and often extending into October. The city is hot, dusty and infinitely sticky. Temperature rises inexorably with the mercury reaching over 40°C (104°F) for much of May, June and July, before the monsoon brings some relief and the occasional flood. 

New Delhi definitely puts its best foot forward between October and March. Autumn (October to November) has cool days and sunny skies, perfect for sightseeing. Winter (December to January) is mild, with average temperatures around 22°C (72°F) though the city can be shrouded in fog.
