    Weather in Hyderabad

    Partly Cloudy 31 °C | Partly Cloudy

    Hyderabad is usually very hot for most parts of the year, except the winter months. The best time to visit is between October and March. In April and May temperatures can go up to 45°C during the day, so it's best to wear a cap or a floppy hat, dress in cottons and carry water while travelling around the city. Autos, buses, cabs all ply to and fro the stadium, so reaching the ground will not be a problem. However, keeping in mind the city's obsession with the game, leave for the stadium a few hours in advance as traffic jams are commonplace a couple of hours before the game begins.
