The best time to visit Kota is during the months of October to March. Kota has a semi arid climate with high temperatures throughout the year. Summers are long, hot and dry, starting in late March and lasting through the end of June. The monsoon season follows, with comparatively lower temperatures, but higher humidity and frequent, torrential downpours. The monsoons subside in October and temperatures rise again. The brief mild winter starts in late November and lasts until the last week of February. Temperatures hover between 26.7 degrees Celcius (max) to 12 degrees Celcius (min). This can be considered the best time to visit Kota, given its unforgiving summers.
