Delhi's climate is, sad to say, infamously bad, combining
the scorching aridity of Rajasthan's deserts with the frigid cold of
the Himalayas. From April to October, temperatures are scorching hot
(over 40°C is common), and the monsoon rains deluge the city in July
and August. In winter, especially December and January, temperatures
can dip to near-zero and the city is blanketed in thick fog, causing
numerous flight cancellations. The shoulder seasons (Feb-Apr and
Sep-Nov) are comparatively pleasant, with temperatures in the
20-30°C range, but short.
