Weather patterns in Lataguri are aligned with that of plains weather. In summer and monsoons, minimum temperatures are about 21 degrees and the maximum rise is to 31 degree. Winter temperatures swing between a minimum of 11 degrees and a maximum of 25 degrees. Monsoons bring heavy to very heavy showers and the forests gleam with fresh leaves and plants, giving the whole place a lush look.
