The best time to visit Howrah is the winter season, from November to February. Temperature stays pleasant between a maximum of 29°C and a minimum of 12°C. November onwards, tourism picks up, and the town sees people from all over the world coming to Howrah.

May onwards till September, sometimes till October, the region experiences monsoons. The average annual precipitation is around 1750 mm and thus, this season is also not recommended to tourists. Therefore summers and monsoons are the least advisable time to travel to Howrah.
