January is the best time to visit Goa in terms of weather. The post-monsoon period has established its positions, and the weather is dreamlike. In January, the low risk of the tropical cyclone is gone, and you are unlikely to see a single raindrop. The sky is bright all day long: absence clouds and uninterrupted sunshine make January the sunniest month. The temperature is identical to December, but the heat is even less perceptible due to the low humidity that drops to 46% or lower. Hence, the days are pleasantly hot, dry, and cloudless—a perfect combination for a beach vacation. By the evening and at night, the temperature may decrease to 23°C (73°F), and a shirt or a light jacket would come in handy.

The weather in February is as magnificent as it was in January. The post-monsoon season continues, taking all the responsibility for the ideal conditions in Goa. If you are looking for the time to come here for sunbathing and day-long swimming, February should be your choice. The days are hot, yet not sultry as the low humidity and a sea breeze moderate the heat. The evenings are pleasantly fresh, comfortable for long walks and sightseeing. During the entire month, there would be no rainy days and barely several clouds in the sky. Sunshine will accompany your days from the early morning until sunset. Hence, sunscreen and a hat won’t be excessive. Besides, as for the rest of the winter months, you might want to carry a light sweater or a shirt in your suitcase for late walks.

In March, Goa gradually enters the hottest period of the year—the pre-monsoon season. So far, the changes are barely noticeable. The days are equally sunny and cloudless. But, by the end of the month, early mornings may get slightly foggy. Though the clouds disappear shortly after sunrise. However, the clouds don’t bring rain, and March is as dry as the winter months. The heat remains fair, yet occasionally the thermometer mark may crawl up to 34°C (93°F) in the afternoon. As the humidity is relatively low, an increase in temperature is not perceptible. You’ll notice that it gets hotter in Goa as a light jacket isn’t necessary anymore for evening walks. Even though the weather prepares to switch to the monsoon season, March still has beautiful conditions for a beach holiday.

As the middle of the pre-monsoon period, April faces further deterioration of the conditions. The changes are not drastic, but more noticeable, compared to March. The days get hotter and hotter, and even the night temperatures are high: the thermometer never shows less than 25°C (77°F). The humidity increases and makes the heat more evident and somewhat bothersome. To refresh yourself, you can swim in the Arabian Sea. The water remains as warm as 28°C (82°F). Due to the higher humidity, April is cloudier. Besides, one-two light rainy episodes might occur, possibly, in the form of a thunderstorm. Even though the weather isn’t perfect in April, it’s still suitable for visiting Goa: the general conditions are tolerable, but the number of tourists decreases.

May stands at the gate of the monsoon season in Goa and deals with all the drawbacks of the transition. The temperature and humidity keep on increasing, bringing up an uncomfortable mixture to the weather in Goa. Typically, the day temperature is over 35°C (95°F); in the worst cases, it may reach up to 40°C (104°F). The temperature decreases after sunset, but the nights are not refreshing. Magnified by the high humidity, the heat makes May the hottest month. Besides, in May, the amount of precipitation is ten times higher than in April. It rains for some 4-5 days a month, but a sudden, heavy thunderstorm might hit the coast. Under such conditions, May is not the best time to travel to Goa.

The southwest monsoon hits Goa, and the weather deteriorates abruptly. It’s likely to rain two out of three days, and the abundant, torrential downpours could be day-long. In June, the amount of precipitation is 6-7 times higher than in May and reaches 870 mm (34 in) a month. Together with July, June is one of the wettest months in Goa. For these days, you should pack an umbrella or a raincoat or plan some indoor activities. The humidity increases, immersing Goa into thick morning fog and covering the sky with clouds for an entire day. You’d barely see the sun, and sunbathing in such conditions doesn’t seem feasible. Although the Arabian Sea is warm, monsoons make the waters rough and dangerous for swimming. Hence, June is unsuitable for beach holidays. Monsoon season prevails in Goa from June to September.

The monsoon season in Goa is in full swing, making July one of the top-3 wettest months of the year in Goa. It rains almost every day, and torrential downpours bring over 995 mm (39 in) of precipitation to Goa in a month. The soil is muggy, and the risk of flooding increases. The humidity reaches 87%, making the air sticky and heavy. Compared to the winter and spring months, the temperature is a few degrees lower, but it doesn’t fall below the mark of 26°C (79°F) and remains way too hot for a comfortable stay. July is the most cloudy month, and the sun shows up for 3-4 hours daily at best. The sea is rough, and the beaches could be closed to prevent accidents. Similar to June, July has nothing to offer those who are looking for quiet, lazy hours on the coast.

In August, Goa continues to live in the state of the monsoon season. The weather remains dreadful, but a slight improvement in conditions could be noticed. Compared to June and July, the amount of precipitation is half as much and is unlikely to exceed 520 mm (20 in). The rains are no longer an everyday issue—they occur every other day, leaving some room for relatively dry pauses. Even though the sky is cloudy most of the time, occasionally, the sun shows up. The Arabian Sea is still dangerous, and the majority of beaches are closed. In August, you won’t enjoy swimming and sunbathing, but you could use sunny pauses to explore nature, visit waterfalls, or go rafting.

The monsoon season gradually approaches its end. The conditions are still far from perfect, but further improvement is evident. The amount of precipitation decreases to 250 mm (10 in) a month. Even though it rains as often as in August, the showers are less intense and torrential. The humidity is still as high as 86%, but due to the long pauses between rain, it gets easier to breathe. Besides, the days get sunnier. When it rains, the clouds keep on covering the sky. But when the shower ends, the sky clears up, and half of the day is sunny. In such periods of good weather, you may sunbathe. The sea calms down a bit, but it’s better to abstain from swimming. In September, other outdoor activities such as nature exploration or rafting are the preferable ones.

October is a transition month when the last signs of the monsoon season are still present. Yet, the improvement in the weather conditions is undeniable. The post-monsoon season takes over Goa. The amount of precipitation drops to 125 mm (5 in) a month and equals the one in May. A few short and relatively light rainy episodes may occur throughout the month, but they are unlikely to be bothersome. After waiting out the rain, you can come back to your activities, be they swimming, sunbathing, sightseeing, or any other. In October, especially in its second half, the Arabian Sea finally calms down. Besides, the clouds are almost gone, and the sun appears more frequently up in the sky. By the end of the month, the post-monsoon period settles, and the beautiful weather lures visitors for beach holidays.

The post-monsoon season settles in. The sky clears up, bringing day-long sunshine to Goa. The day temperature increases for several degrees. As the humidity decreases, the temperature of 30°C (86°F) doesn’t feel as scorching. Besides, the sea breeze tempers the heat. The water warms up, and being calm and waveless, entices to swim. The general improvement in the weather conditions makes Goa attractive for beach vacations, and plenty of tourists start heading this direction. However, the ideal weather might be interrupted by the tropical cyclone. It might spoil the conditions for a few days, or bring 1-3 heavy, yet brief showers. The deterioration in weather won’t last long and is unlikely to affect your holidays.

In December, the post-monsoon weather is settled, and most days promise to be beautiful. By noon, the temperature may rise to 30°C (86°F), but a decrease in humidity makes the heat less perceptible. Besides, after sunset, the temperature drops, though it never gets lower than 24°C (75°F). Hence, you’d find a shirt useful for night walks. Typically, rain is not scheduled for this month, but tropical cyclones could still reach the coast of Goa and bring several rainy days. During the day, the sun never hides and makes December one of the sunniest months of the year. With no clouds in the sky and the sea of 28°C (82°F), Goa is a comfy place for sunbathing and swimming. That’s why, in December, it tends to be somewhat crowded with tourists.
