Trichy (Tiruchirappalli) Weather And Best Time To Visit Trichy (Tiruchirappalli)
Trichy has a predictable tropical climate with hot summers, humid rainy monsoons and warm winters. The district lies on the Deccan Plateau, so the days are usually balmy and nights cooler since pleasant winds blow in from the southeast. Trichy as well as the towns and cities in its vicinity are tourist and pilgrim centres and if you choose a reasonably good season to visit, you can go sightseeing within the town and its environs too, without any hassles.
The best season to visit Trichy is winter from December to February, with its charming cool weather. Here's a guide for you.
The months remain hot and muggy. The dog days of summer may go up with a heat wave, with temperature averaging between 25°C - 41°C. Intermittent April showers, with gusty winds in the evenings might help bring a dip in mercury levels. Keep an umbrella handy, both for the sun and the sudden rains. There might be a lull in the heat as evening sets in and the weather turns mildly cool. Summer is not a touristy season in Trichy. If you are there, beat the summer with Trichy’s special summer drink Elaneer Sherbeth, buttermilk and mangoes.
The southwest and more specifically, the northeast monsoon from October to November are quite moderate to heavy. There are occasional intense rains, with thundershowers and flooding in low lying areas. Monsoon is not a tourist season in Trichy. If you are travelling to Trichy during this period, it would be helpful if you carry an umbrella and a raincoat along. Temperature averages 24°C-36°C.
Winter is pleasant with rather breezy, moist days and cool nights. There might be intermittent rains from the passing northeast monsoon in December, though, with a rare light mist and fog in the mornings. Temperature ranges from 19°C to 22°C. Trichy celebrates Pongal, the harvest festival in January, which tourists from all over the world participate in and is another good reason, why winter becomes the best season for a visit to Trichy. If you’re an avid bird watcher, winter’s the time to visit Trichy’s lakes on the outskirts of town, to spot the Greater Spotted Eagles and Eurasian Eastern Harriers that migrate in for the wintry weather.
