The festive season of Diwali makes an appearance sometimes in October and the other times, during the first half of November. North India sees dry weather and the period is the transition time from Post Monsoon season to winters.

Just prior to Diwali this time, the hilly states of North India were covered with snow causing a dip in the temperatures over that area. So much so, the plains of North India also saw drop in the temperatures.

Let us take a look for the weather of major cities of India during Diwali:

Delhi: Due to absence of any system, Delhi is expected to see a dry Diwali. However, pollution levels will remain high. In fact, the thick layer of pollution will not let the minimum temperatures drop despite the passage of Western Disturbance which could have caused a drop in the minimums to quite an extent.

Mumbai: The city of Mumbai did see some showers in the recent days, however, as far as the festival of Diwali is concerned, weather will remain dry with day temperatures settling in the mid 30s and the minimums in the mid 20s.
