Weather Overview for Coorg
Coorg is the former name given to what is known today as Kodagu, which is
one of the 30 administrative districts in Karnataka,
or Kodagu, is found in south western Karnataka in the Western
Ghats. With a population of 548,561 in habitants, Coorg is the
least populated district in Karnataka. The warm and tropical weather found in
this district of Karnataka makes Coorg an ideal place for
several different types of agriculture and farming to take place; the coffee
grown in Coorg in particular is known worldwide for its exquisite taste.
Every year from June until September, Coorg experiences monsoons that visit the area with heavy rain; during this time of the year, Coorg receives most of its annual rainfall with over 500 cm of rain during the monsoon season.
Although Coorg is surrounded by the misty mountains of the Western Ghats, the district of Coorg keeps warm temperatures throughout the year with the lowest temperatures getting no lower than 10ºC in the coldest months of winter from December to February. Winters are cool and chilly enough to wear a jacket and woollen clothes; however, the weather is still mild enough for tourists to enjoy some outdoor activities and the green forestry of the area. Some light to mild rain may still be seen up until December as a result of the monsoon season and mild wind may be experienced during this season as well.
Spring brings pleasantly mild weather to the district of Coorg, or Kodagu. April is the most pleasant month of the year with warm weather and little rain before the beginning of summer brings strong heat waves. From March until May, Coorg experiences very hot temperatures that reach up to 34ºC; these are the hottest months to visit Coorg and although the heat is strong, spring time makes Coorg a great time of the year to visit and enjoy outdoor activities such as visiting the Iruppu Falls, Abbey Falls in Madikeri and the Nisargadhama Forest.
Summer time brings the beginning of monsoon season from June until September. As it is during this time of the year when the district of Coorg receives most of its rain, just like it is for many other districts, therefore it is best to visit Coorg at other times of the year when rainfall is least likely. During monsoon season, the Coorg region expects over 500cm of rain; at this time, Coorg receives the most amount of rain for the whole year. As it is a significantly large quantity of rain, tourists are advised to not visit during this time of the year due to the floods.
Tourists are encouraged to visit Coorg during winter time as the weather is mild and temperatures do not go below 11ºC. This is the perfect time of the year to visit Coorg if the main attractions for the visit are temples and sacred places. Although temperatures are mild, it is encouraged that tourists bring warm clothes for drops of temperature.
Not much rainfall is seen during the winter time as most of the rainfall happens during the summer in the monsoon season; therefore it is safe to plan some outdoor activities that can be done wearing jackets. It is moderately windy at this time of the year which makes the climate feel cooler than the temperature is. The mild temperatures permit for pleasant activities such as bird watching and angling.
Spring is the best time of the year to plan a holiday and outdoor activities as the weather is warm and reaches up to 34ºC. Rather than summer being the hottest season, spring brings the warmest temperatures of the year. From March until April in the spring time, one can experience great weather conditions with little rain and a warm climate to enjoy everything Coorg has to offer.
The hottest month in Coorg is May, right before the monsoon showers hit in June. Even during the hottest month in May, cool winds from the mountains in the Western Ghats are experienced, cooling down the temperature significantly. As the climate in May can be too hot for tourists to enjoy outdoor activities, the best times of the year to visit Coorg are from October when the monsoon season is over until April before the monsoon showers arrive and before the heat waves that May brings.
Monsoon season is characterised all through the summer season as it elongates from June until September. Floods are often occurrences at this time of the year; therefore tourists are encouraged to visit after monsoon season. Temperatures are in the high 20s and low 30s during the summer and the humidity brought on by the rain makes the weather feel tropical.
Although rain falls heavily during the monsoon, many people still visit Coorg to experience the green flora and fauna and take advantage of lower hotel rates as a result of the monsoon season.
From October until December, the climate is dry after the monsoon season is over. This time is great for a holiday as the weather is sunny and skies are generally clear with little chance of precipitation at this time of the year. Temperatures range between 19ºC to the high 20s.
Throughout the whole year, Coorg experiences a dry season with very little rain from October until May. During these months, the weather is warm and sunny with abundant cool winds from the nearby mountains of the Western Ghats.
More prominent than the dry season is the rainy season with the annual
monsoon season hitting the Coorg district with over 500cm of rain in just 3
months. The monsoon season affects a big part of the coastal part of India every
year with floods and muddy roads all over Coorg that make transportation
difficult for tourists.
Temperatures are humid and hot due to the heavy rainfalls brought on by the monsoon and hot summer climate. Some outdoor activities may be restricted such as hiking and boating as the monsoon could affect the corrosion of the environment, making it difficult and dangerous for tourists to partake in such activities during the monsoon.
