Ahmedabad is the most prominent city in Gujarat, along with being a major commercial center in the state. Consequently, there has been a rapid increase in the number of industries and mills in and around the city. Though it had helped in the growth of the region and the state, it has also added pollution to the environment. As it is located away from the sea, the climatic conditions of the city are fairly influenced by it. Ahmedabad also experiences the three main seasons, like most of the cities in India.
In summers, which last during the months of March and June, the weather
is very hot and dry. The average temperature ranges between the 23°C
to 43°C. The highest recorded temperature is 47°C. During the
winter months, i.e. from November to February, the climate is quite
pleasant. During this time, the temperature ranges from 15°C to 35°C
and the city experiences extremely dry climatic conditions. One can feel
a slight chill during the month of January, mainly because of the cold
northerly winds flowing in the region.
The lowest temperature ever recorded in Ahemdabad is 5°C. Not to
forget, the monsoon sweeps the city during mid-June and mid-September.
The south west monsoon is responsible for the humid weather at this
time. The annual average rainfall in the city is 93.2 cm. At times the
torrential rain causes floods in the river. The increasing air, water
and soil pollution is one of the major reasons for the varying weather
