Due to its geographical location, India experiences different shades of weather right from extreme cold to hot, dry to rainy and humid to chilly. In fact, the four main metro cities of India i.e. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai are distributed in all four directions. Therefore, the variability in weather conditions is always seen. However, large weather variability is seen during the months of January and February.
Let’s us have a look at the different shades of weather in all the major metro cities:
Chennai – After Northeast Monsoon, the capital city of Tamil Nadu goes almost dry. The month of February is also the least rainy month for the city with 3.4 mm of normal rainfall. In fact, January and February combined, end up in single digit rains. Moreover, anytime from mid-January the state starts experiencing warm weather.
Among all the four metro cities, both maximums and minimums of Chennai are the highest with maximums settling between low-30's and minimums around 20˚C.
