Mumbai has a truly tropical climate and temperatures remain fairly uniform throughout the year. You never need to pack woolens for Mumbai, not even in December. Mumbai is drowned every year under torrential Indian Ocean monsoon rains between June and September, usually beginning by 7th June every year.

It is said that Mumbai has three seasons: hot, humid and very humid. The period between October and February is the most pleasant. During this time, the city enjoys a balmy season of blue skies and a cool breeze. From March, the temperature gradually rises and the humidity reaches saturation point. It is very hot just before the monsoon rains break in mid-June. The rains last until September. They come as a welcome relief to Bombayites but when the drainage system fails, everyone encounters difficulties getting around town. After the initial few days of flooded roads, however, Bombayites take the downpours and regular drenching in their stride. In September, the humidity and temperature begin to fall.

Best season to visit:
If you are wondering about which is the best season to visit Mumbai, then the answer is that one can visit Mumbai any time of the year and the city will never disappoint. The activity goes on 365 days a year and the city never comes standstill. But there are certain periods when the excitement of Mumbai touches a feverish pitch especially during the months of October and November when Ganesh Chaturthi, a Hindu festival, is celebrated for 11 days. This festival in Mumbai brings with it lots of joy and fun as processions are taken out. In fact, during this time, the entire state reels in celebration.

Another occasion when you make a trip to Mumbai to feel the excitement seep through you is during Diwali. Diwali, the moonless night turns out to be the brightest night of the year with all the homes being lit with lamps and lights.
