May to July in Srilanka

The south-west monsoon blows through May to mid-July but, as the name suggests, it only affects the south-west quarter of the country in areas such as Colombo and Galle. It is gentler than the north-east monsoon that comes later in the year so when there are showers they are usually short and sharp

July to September in Srilanka

This is known as the “inter-monsoon” season, meaning that, spare the odd shower, the weather is usually great. Temperatures are high – averaging around 29°C– and the beaches are hot and dry. All in all this is a great time to travel.

October to December in Srilanka

The north-east monsoon blows from October to December and is the heavier of the two monsoons. It affects the entire country and is rather unpredictable: it can be strong, light or sporadic and sometimes never comes at all. December is usually a good month to travel, with weather similar to January once the north east monsoon winds have passed. However, occasionally we have seen heavy rain in December
