Sri Lanka, Figures and Facts
Invariably tropical and warm throughout the year, the only thing that affects the weather in Sri Lanka are the distinct dry and wet seasons. From May to September the Yala monsoon brings rain to the south and west of the island while the Maha monsoon affects the east and north with showers between October and January. The north and the east receive the least rain by comparison and in coastal areas, the weather remains the most constant, warm and sunny all-year-long, averaging 27 degrees Celsius.
