Coimbatore Weather And Best Time To Visit Coimbatore
Coimbatore is a beautiful advanced city in the state of Tami Nadu. The eastern side of Coimbatore is where the region is more urbanized and dry, whereas the western expanse is verdant and lush with the Anamalai, Nilgiris and Munnar range of the Western Ghats and the Palghat Gap, a mountain way between Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The northern region has tropical evergreen forests of sandalwood, bamboo and rosewood. Needless to say, Coimbatore has a tropical climate that looks good throughout the year, but the best time for a trip would be in winter, from November to February, when the weather is at its best.
Summer is not searing hot here in Coimbatore, thanks to the proximity of the Western Ghats and the rivers on the southern side, but summers could be hot and humid. The skies are generally clear and the days turn comparatively cooler after sunset. This is the second best time to visit Coimbatore. There might be intermittent April showers that bring relief from the heat. Keep an umbrella handy, either way. Beat the heat with Coimbatore's special Elaneer and Nannari Sherbeth.
From June till August the region receives rainfall from the southwest monsoon that crosses the Palghat Gap. From October till November the northeast monsoon rains come in with moderate to heavy showers. Monsoon is generally a lean tourist period as sightseeing and travelling during the rains is cumbersome, but the landscape turns so green and lovely, that it’s still worth a visit.
Winters are reasonably fresh and breezy. It’s not very cold, but there’s a gentle mild nip in the air that is so refreshing. It’s a cool place to spend winter in, exploring the places, visiting the waterfalls or go trekking up the hills. January is the coolest and driest month of the year. Winter celebrates a number of festivals like Pongal, and Thaipoosam and Thirukarthigai in Marudhamalai.
