Hi to everybody. I would like to visit south India, particularly kerala and tamil nadu. The only period in which I can go there in august, at least the beginning of september. I know about the monsoon, especially they said this year it will be very humid. Can someone of you explain what appens during the monsoon in South India? Does it rains all the day long? there is no sun? is it possible going arround and travelling. can change something between august and the beginning of september?
If someone of you can give me some clear and precise notion on this topic I will be grateful.

Thank's.

Tamil Nadu will probably be dry. Maybe occasional light showers. We don't really get the SW monsoon; while Kerala is being washed away in June, we get unbearably baked. Temperature in TN will be high thirties; it is past the April-May-June peak, but not really cooling down until we get our NE monsoon and "winter".

Kerala, last year, got very little rain in June/july, and unseasonal rains in August. By August, the monsoon should be more or less over there; no, you will not see rain all day, just occasional heavy showers. Still, you may see storms enough to cause disruption and danger; they may interfere with your travel plans. When it is not raining, it will sunny and hot.

I'd say... go!

Welcome to the site, by the way

I second that.You can safely tour Tamilnadu and even it might not rain all the days during august in kerala.just study the forecast before you travel (many sites forecast upto 1 month) and make your last minute travel changes again.keep in mind, weather (gods) is/are unpredictable.have a great trip and welcome to the site.

There's more to meteorology than the monsoons!

I forget if it was June or July, but we did have some quite heavy rain here over several days of last summer. Not monsoon, but entirely different weather systems coming in from Bay of Bengal.

Thank you to every body for your informations.
Some more questions. What are the site to check for forecast?
There could be some significant difference in the weather in Kerala between the beginning of september and the end of august?

Thank's again.

Monsoon starts in Kerala usually starts in June first week. August last week and September second Keralites celebrate
their biggest festival Onam. Climate will be good and rain may be less

beaches

Hi to everybody,

this site is wonderful for news and informations about india. I have some more question.

Do you think that it is possible to have beachtime during august in kerala. And if yes, what is the best place? consider that i don't like crowded places. I would prefer a lonely beach, with palms and a nice sea, not many people but, may be, some nice girl. Anyway, not a touristic place with hotel and all the rest. Only some shelter for sleeping: a very freak situation.

Thank you.

Fabio.

Should be perfectly possible, yes.

In a normal year, August may feature some wash-out days, even some intense storms, but most of the rain will be occasional showers.

Last year was not typical, and there was barely any rain in June and July, but lots in August.

vineeth, it it is forum convention not to use SMS or chat lingo, so please take the trouble to spell out in English.

Some of our members, from different countries will not even understand u, dere, coz, njoy, and others just find it annoying.
