The summer season is hot and can get extremely hot and humid. The city receives heavy rainfall during the monsoon season and winters are pretty pleasant.

Things get extremely difficult for locals and visitors in the month of May due to heatwaves and high humidity. Therefore, sightseeing can get difficult because of scorching heat. Heatwaves cause people to stay indoors and move out only if it’s required. Humidity levels can be as high as 75%. Hotels and travel agencies run different offers to attract visitors during this time. So if you have received such an offer which you think is good and have planned already to visit Kurnool, ensure you are carrying light cotton clothes to avoid any discomfort.
