Being in the tropical zone and near the Arabian Sea, the climate of Goa is warm and humid for most of the year. The month of May is the hottest, with day-time temperatures touching 35"C (95"F). To top it, the heat is coupled with high humidity. The monsoons arrive around early June and provide a much needed respite from the heat. Then Goa receives the full blast of the Indian monsoon with sudden downpours and tropical thunderstorms. It is during the monsoon that Goa is at its most beautiful - with greenery sprouting all around.Most of Goa's annual rainfall is received through the monsoons which last till late September. Goa Weather has a short cool season too which lasts between mid-December and February. These months are marked by cool nights with temperatures of about 20"C (68"F) and warm days of about 29"C (84"F). Humidity remains in moderate amounts.

The best time to visit Goa is during the cooler months between November and March, when the weather is warm, there is no rain, and the seas are calm and clear. The most popular time to visit Goa is over December and January, partly because the weather is ideal at this time, but also because Goa is renowned for its Christmas and New Year's celebrations. October, at the very start of the tourist season, is a good month to visit in if you want to avoid the worst of the crowds, but, although the beaches will be lovely and empty, many facilities will be closed and it'll be harder to find open restaurants, shops and the like. March or early April are also good times to arrive, as it isn't quite as busy and not yet very hot, although you may have the same problem as in October, with facilities beginning to close down.

For a fun, frolic and evoking person like you and me, Goa can be visited and revisited anytime in the year. If you are wishing to tan your body under the ardent summer rays of the sun, the Goa beaches will offer you an exhaustive ambiance. Even the winters will make you idle when you will chance upon a refreshing moment after a therapeutic massage at a beach side spa and resort in Goa. Thereby the monsoon acts more secretly. One can ideally go for long strolls on the tranquil soaked beaches without having to bump into hordes of other eager tourists. Well, during the monsoon one may not strike upon heavy duty adventure water sports but if you bulge ouit under a sere sky all of a sudden after a heavy shower your luck may indulge you in parasailing, jetsking or bumper rides, which are relatively safe and don't require one to venture deep into the oceanic rage.

The main feature of the climate of Goa is the monsoon, which occurs between June and the end of September. Goa is in the path of the southwest monsoon, thereby experiencing a dry period lasting six to eight months of the year, followed by the annual rainfall, which occurs over the remaining four months.

During the monsoon, 250cm to 300cm of rain is normal, although in the Western Ghats the downpour is considerably high than on the coast. Once the monsoon has run its course the skies clear and the weather of Goa becomes pleasant. For four to five months, from October through February the climate of Goa is near perfect-cloudless blue skies, warm but not oppressively hot days, and calm seas.Under the Köppen climate classification, Goa experiences a tropical monsoon climate.
