All about the climate

May, the hottest period, precedes the summer monsoon rains. Most of the east, southeast, and northern parts of the country comprise the "dry zone", which receives between 1,200 mm and 1,900 mm of rain annually. Much of the rain in these areas falls from October to January; during the rest of the year there is very little precipitation.

Humidity is typically higher in the southwest and mountainous areas and depends on the seasonal patterns of rainfall, and places like Colombo experience daytime humidity above 79 % all year round, rising to almost 90 % during the monsoon season in June. Anuradhapura experiences a daytime low of 60 % during the monsoon month of March, but a high of 79 % during the November and December rains. In the highlands, Kandy's daytime humidity usually ranges between 75 % and 83 %.
