Jodhpur is known for its year round sunny weather. It has a desert influenced climate, with blazing hot summers (March to June), and mild to moderately cold winters (December to February). Monsoon season falls from July to September. It is best to visit between October and February, when temperatures are at their least extreme. There are few sand storms between October and February, and several festivals fall during this period, which also means that it is a tourist peak season.
