Weather at Allahabad


This city is known to witness very hot summers, but winters are usually pleasant. However, its close proximity to the Himalayan region and the fact that this region lies in the great plains of India sometimes makes it prone to cold winds during the months of winter. The local weather at the time of the meeting is expected to be cool and pleasant, with the minimum temperature ranging between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius.

Please note that this year we have been experiencing unusually warm weather.
