Hyderabad



What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

From late October to late March, it's sunny blue skies, low humidity and low 80s-high 70s daily (think SoCal weather). From April through June is summer and the temperatures rise to low 100s F, a bit of humidity, but still manageable. July-October is rainy season, so it'll cool off, air is clear, but overcast a lot. All that to say, when people visit from other India posts they all comment on how much better the weather and air is here. - Nov 18, 2017
There is a dry season and a monsoon season. They say that the hot season is May-June, but it is hot as early as March and as late as September. Temperatures easily reach 120+ F, which means that it is unpleasant to be outside. The rest of the months are in the low 90 F's. It rains in the monsoon season, sometimes quite a bit. The city has no drains, so it floods every time there is a bid rain. - Sep 20, 2016
The rainy season last year wasn't very rainy. Occasional thunderstorms outside of the rainy seasons. Hot, hot, in the summer: but it's a dry heat, at least. Somewhat humid in the rainy season. Very, very nice - nearly perfection - in the winter. - Mar 16, 2015
I love the weather here -- no humidity thus far, pleasant breeze, blue skies. It's only rained one day since the day I arrived four months ago. - Jan 18, 2015
Warm and sunny most of the year round. Hyderabad has the best climate in India if you can stand the heat. June through October is the monsoon with almost daily showers. April and May can be brain-meltingly hot but the rest of the year is pleasant. - Nov 20, 2014
Fairly pleasant climate, if you like heat. It's dry for much of the year. Monsoon season (mid-June to mid-November can be muggy) but the rest of the year is fairly dry. Never gets below about 70 degrees. December and January are the nicest months. April and May are fiercely hot. - Jul 18, 2014
The weather in Hyderabad is the best in India. The winters (October-March) are perfect (80 degrees), then the summer is miserable from April to June, but then the "monsoon" is very light and only lasts from July to September. - Mar 2, 2012
Summer, from March through May, is hot and dry. The month of May is 110 degrees nearly every day. The rainy season, starting in June, is humid but not as warm as summer. It's fairly comfortable and the rains are not as devastatingly flooding as other parts of India. Winter, December-January, is pleasant, with daytime temps in the 80s and nighttime temps in the 60s. - Feb 27, 2012
Great in the winter (80s) and sweltering in the summer (100+). - Jan 11, 2011
