Climate

The hilly areas of Wayanad are cradles of wind. While high velocity winds are very common in the high altitudes during south west monsoon (which usually falls during June –September) dry winds have been experienced during March-April. It is also a region which experiences one of the highest rainfalls in the country. The mean average in the district is 2322 mm. But some areas like Lakkidi, Vythiri and Meppadi experience a higher rainfall of 3000 to 4000 mm. The south-west monsoon falls during June-September and north-east monsoon in October to November.

The region offers a rather cool salubrious climate during all seasons of the year. In the Ambalavayal area of Wayanad, the mean temperature ranges between 18 degree Celsius and 29 degree Celsius. The humidity too is relatively high and it sometimes goes up to 95 percent during June - September.

The seasonal changes are obviously felt in Wayanad. While it is cold during December-February, you can feel a hot climate during March-May.
