Abstract: Study on coastal weather at Vengurla, west coast of India showed considerable seasonal climate variation. Diurnal variation of wind speed along with deviation of coastal breezes is gentle during pre- and post-monsoon periods. Coastal wind during summer monsoon period is dominated by remotely generated monsoon wind. Duration between setup and setdown of sea breeze event gradually extends from post-monsoon to pre-monsoon along with increasing trend in duration as well as strength of solar radiation and air temperature. During diurnal variation in pre- and post-monsoons, a reversal event occurs between relative humidity and coexisting air temperature. There was no considerable relation during summer monsoon seasons. The dramatic variation in the diurnal and seasonal atmospheric condition reveals the essential of annual time series data for local weather prediction.
