Gujarat Weather



Gujarat weather, an inevitable part of the geography of Gujarat, has certain characteristics that mark it special among the other western regions of India. Gujarat weather is marked by an arid and dry climate, with a little bit of rain during the monsoons.

Gujarat weather shows two distinctive traits. In the northern region, Gujarat weather is marked by a dry and arid climate; whereas in the south, one can find a moist weather owing to the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Cambay.

Normally, the Gujarat weather is divided into four major seasons:
  • The winter season (November - February)
  • The summer season (March - May)
  • The monsoon season (June - September), and
  • The autumn season (October)
Winters in Gujarat are mild, pleasant and dry. The day temperature in winter is around 83° F and at night is 53° F. Summers are extremely hot, with the day time temperature being 115° F, and the night temperature being 90° F. In Gujarat, monsoon is generally hot and utterly humid. The temperature at day is 100° F but at night it falls down to 80° F. Sometimes severe flood also occurs in some parts of the region during monsoon.

The monsoon is, indeed, a characteristic feature of the Gujarat weather because the other parts of the western India is devoid of any rainfall. Studying the geography of Gujarat, one can find that the rainfall in Gujarat varies from place to place - the average rainfall varies from 33 to 152 centimeters. The northern region receives a rainfall ranging from 51 to 102 centimeters; whereas the southern region receives 76 to 152 centimeters of rainfall.

Rainfall in the southern regions of Saurashtra and the Gulf of Cambay is low compared to the other parts of Gujarat. The arid regions around the Rann of Kutch faces an acute scarcity of water, due to lack of rainfall in these areas.

Therefore, it is evident that the Gujarat weather has its own distinct characteristics and is unique in its own way!
