Climate in Kerala


Kerala, the land surrounded by the pristine waters of the Arabian Sea, has an equable climate that varies from season to season.

The presence of the Western Ghats on the eastern side of the state and across the path of the southwest monsoon creates an important climatic zone with copious rainfall on the windward side and a dry belt on the lee side in the east.

The Climate of Kerala can be clasified roughly into three categories. The summer in Kerala lasts from March to May and is followed by the southwest monsoon spell lasting until the middle of October(Kerala Weather October). The northeast monsoons take over the relay around this time and linger on till the month of February.
