October to March is the best time to visit Kanpur when the winter sets in making the weather pleasant for sightseeing. The temperature during these months ranges between 7° C to 20° C.
The summers are scorching in Kanpur, with uncomfortably high temperatures and 'Loo' (hot winds) blowing through the day, as is common in most of North India.
During the monsoon season, heavy showers are frequent in Kanpur rendering most of the tourist attractions inaccessible at times. It is, therefore, best to avoid months like June-July.
