An overview of Sri Lanka weather

The climate of Sri Lanka is consistently warm and sunny and conditions rarely grow chilly, even at night. In the lowland areas around the coast, temperatures are much higher and humidity can make evenings rather clammy, although sea breezes keep daytimes fairly fresh. Expect rain on this island at any time of the year: rainfall is most intense in the southwest from April to June and from October to November.


Sri Lankan Landscape

Rain tends to fall mainly in the afternoons and can be accompanied by thunderstorms. The driest conditions are found in the northeast which has only one main rainy season (from October to January).
