Weather in February in India [2023]: Cold and Warm!

By RitaUpdated Dec. 5, 2022

Most of India is dry in February. But the temperatures are different depending on their latitudes and altitudes.   

The far north mountain areas are cold and snowy. North India gets cool and rain-free, while south India enjoys plenty of sunshine with slightly increasing temperatures.

The nice weather makes February a great time to do some outdoor activities such as going to the beach or visiting historic sites. Meanwhile, it is less crowded as it is the end of the peak season (November to February) in India.

India Weather in February: Overview

  • Average temperature: 27°C (81°F)
