Like many Indian cities, Hyderabad has a tropical wet and dry climate bordering on a hot semi-arid climate. The best time to visit Hyderabad is from October to March. Temperatures are mild with abundant sunshine during this time, and average temperature range from a low of 15°C (59°F) to a high of 29°C (85°F). March to June is hot and dry with occasional thunderstorms. Highs can reach 45°C (113°F) or more and lack of air-conditioning can make it feel very uncomfortable. July to October can be quite warm and humid and low pressure systems from the Bay of Bengal during the monsoon season can cause heavy rain for days.
- Winter (November to February) is pleasant with the temperature running between 14°C to 32°C making it suitable for sightseeing and outdoor activities in Hyderabad.
- Summer (March to May) is severely hot especially the months of April and May, with the temperature being always above 30°C and soaring as high as 45°C. Sightseeing becomes very difficult due to the hot sun.
- Monsoon (June to September) offers medium to heavy rains and may be associated with heavy winds. The monsoon months are not preferable for travelling around Hyderabad.
