Rain generally washes away the colours of Holi in parts of North and East India. Short sharp showers are witnessed during late afternoon hours on Holi. But this year most parts of the country will be mainly dry, barring coastal areas of Kerala and interiors of Peninsular India.
Weather in Delhi on Holi
Like every other festival, Delhiites celebrate Holi with extreme unmatched enthusiasm and fervour. The capital city is an amalgamation of cultures and traditions and thus, virtually all aspects of Holi as seen in various states are noticeable in the numerous pockets of Delhi.
Day temperatures will rise in the city to mid-twenties, giving people all the more reasons to play with water colours.
Weather in Kolkata on Holi
Walking through the streets in tolis, applying colours on each other till they literally become unrecognizable, is what Holi means in Kolkata. The city at the moment is experiencing sunny weather and extremely hot days with maximums around 34°C. But who cares about heat when you can jump in a pool of coloured water.
Holi is all about feasting and partying in B-town. Spend just 1000-1200 rupees and attend renowned parties on the Juhu Beach, where you can celebrate the day with colours, bhang and celebrities. As temperatures are on the rise in Mumbai, rain dances wouldn’t be a bad option either.
Weather in South India on Holi

It has been raining in Bangalore since the beginning of the month and this spell of rain could extend till Holi, on the 6th of March.
