<p>Objective: The main objective of this paper describes how the large scale windfarms affect the climate of south west monsoon region. Methods/Analysis: Method used for analysing climatic parameters of before and after installation of wind farms is Gaussian mixture model. ArcGIS and QGIS software is used for image and geo-information analysis. Data from the commercial wind turbine of south west monsoon region like temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, wind speed is used to find the climatic variation. Findings: Large scale wind farms significantly affect the various climatic parameters. These impacts depends on the static stability, increase or decrease in the climatic parameters. Conclusion/ Application: Improvements can be made by taking the ground temperature measured by satellite image and identify the warming effect of night and day time warming effect of large scale wind farm area of southwest monsoon regions.</p>
