My sister is wanting to travel to Thiruvananthapuram and the best info I could find for her on climate and weather conditions were:
Because of its nearness to the sea, the climate of Trivandrum is tropical. This also gives Trivandrum a very pleasant weather round the year. The average maximum temperature can go up to 36.2�C in summer months and to a minimum of 18.0�C in the winters. Monsoon comes to Trivandrum in the month of May and remains there until November.
If anyone else could enlighten me on weather conditions and best times to travel there, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks.

How is this information not sufficient? I've visited Trivandrum thrice, the last time just this year in January. Actually, I was doing the backwaters tour in Kerala, and visited Trivandrum after that. I think the best time to travel there is between December and February, with January being the best time of the year. The climate, like much of the region, is tropical, but from what I can recall, it was not as humid as I thought it would be. Overall, the weather is extraordinary - for me, it was around 28
C the whole time. Southern India generally has wonderful weather.
Hope this helps.

The state of Kerala is a wonderful place and I'm sure your sister will enjoy it. Kerala is very very safe for women but as a general precaution women should be extra cautious anywhere in India. I would advise her not to travel alone and not wear any "revealing" outfits in public. I suppose your sister has already done all the research but if you need extra info let us know. Hope she has a great time!

My relatives in kerala also told me the same thing, its raining heavily.
Best time to go there is aug/sept during onam season then dec/jan. Kovalam beach and the resort designed by charles correa is a great place to visit and stay. Also temples at tvm. Kannakumari is also good. Some other places are Munnar, cochin, kumarakam. You can lot of info in this website. Kumarakam backwaters and boat houses are great places to stay and dine( i hope she likes coconut). The interior of the resort is designed by famous Arundhati Roy. There are some good sea food resturants is cochin. check this URL=http://www.hotelsofkerala.com/hotelstar.html]check this[/URL]also.
I wish i could take your sis place.
Great place to do shopping. Ashok (mash)can give more info

Varumpol kuracchu Malayalam padicchittu varan parayade.
This gives me a grand Idea. Why not turn this thread into a Mallu phrase book for travellers.
1) Entherappee, sukham thannayalle? - Hello, How are you ?
2) Vo oru vidham angane ponu anna - Very well, thank you.
3) Pinne entharokke undeddey visheshangal ? - And what else is new ?
There is a slight variation in the Malayalam used in northern states.
Northern variation
1) Barin Haajiyaare kutthirrikkeen - Welcome.
