Aurangabad in Monsoon (July - September)

Monsoons in Aurangabad are short and sporadic since this region does not see much rainfall. On an average, the monsoon lasts from July to September and temperature is in the range of 20 to 25 degrees Celcius. The monsoon season in the region is always cloudy, and it stays static for many days at a stretch. This city receives about 700 mm of rainfall annually. The temperature comes down to a comfortable level, but the weather is not pleasant for tourism as the presence of high humidity makes the climate sultry and inappropriate for going on city tours.

However, the scenic beauty of Aurangabad is at its best during monsoons. The stifling weather prevents the tourists from indulging in outdoor activities. Nonetheless, the gushing water bodies and the scenic views of lush green terrains are something not to be missed, especially for rain lovers. The month of October brings the post-monsoon season into Aurangabad, welcoming clear skies, plentiful sunshine and cool breeze. It is one of the best times to travel across the city to explore its scenic beauty and other nearby attractions.
