The absolute best months for climbing are January, February, and September since they are the warmest months and almost clear of clouds. , though one could easily succeed throughout the year.
April and early May could get heavy rain or snow, but is good if you want a quiet clear mountain.
Also great are June through August (though colder), and November/December (could be wetter).
Through September and October it gets steadily warmer. October is particularly good if you want little or no rain, mild weather and few people on the mountain.

January through March are the warmest months, almost clear of clouds safe for a few brief rain showers, followed by the main rainy season during April & May. The temperatures will still be warm, but massive clouds will block visibility, while dropping snow on the summit and heavy rain on the lower slopes.
