Delhi is hot and humid in the summers, and cold in the winters. In summers, the heat wave is immense and adequate precaution has to be taken before going out in the afternoons. The cold wave from the Himalayan region makes winters very chilly. The average temperatures range from 25°C to 46°C during summer and 2°C to 5°C during winter. The best season to visit Delhi is during the spring season, i.e.; during February to April and August to November. During the blooming season (Feb-April), Delhi wears a festive look.
