The early part of the day and late evenings tend to be very comfortable & pleasant during this time of the year. Thanks to the overall suppressed atmospheric conditions the humidity also tends to stay low during most time of the day making it less sticker than the typical Chennai Humidity that we tend to associate the city for most of the year.
