Bengaluru (Bangalore) Weather And Best Time To Visit Bengaluru (Bangalore)
Bangalore, India's IT hub, has a most agreeable weather at all times, which is neither too hot in summers, nor too cold in winters. You can visit the Garden City any time of the year, but the best time to visit Bangalore is the winter season, when the weather is pleasant and mildly chilly enough, just spot-on for sightseeing. Winter is the right time for trekking and all sorts of sundry outdoor activities, of which there are quite aplenty in Bangalore.
Summer is moderately warm, though there might be sporadic heat waves that make summer hotter than usual. The hottest month of the year is April, with the average highest temperature rising to 35ᴼC. Occasional summer or pre-monsoon showers help to bring the temperature down. Wear light cotton clothes and carry sunglasses and water bottles. Check out the summer blossoms in full bloom in the gardens and roadside trees.
Bangalore's monsoon showers endure from June to September and bring in copious rain from the south-west monsoon. If the precipitation is high, there may be occasional flooding in low lying areas that might make touring the city through the thundershowers a difficult one. Carry raincoats and umbrellas, in case you want to travel during the monsoon season.
Post Monsoon (October-December)
Bangalore sits between the south-west and south-east coasts and gets rainfall from two monsoon seasons. As the south-west monsoon recedes and the north-east monsoon rains in, Bangalore receives the heaviest showers in the months of August, September and October. This a rainy off-season period, and if your your plans include sightseeing, you might enjoy yourself only on short day tours!
Winter is the best time to travel to Bangalore. The season is very pleasant and dry, with warm sunny days and cool nights. At about a minimum of 15ᴼC, January is the coldest month of the year. Days are clear and sunny or cloudy in turns and you can have fun visiting the sights or trekking to places around Bangalore. If you are lucky, you might find migrating birds that have flown to Bangalore's waterways for winter. Put on warm woolens and keep your camera handy.
