Weather details in april

Rainfall increases in frequency and intensity in April. Most localities in Sri Lanka are experiencing a strong increase in humidity and heat. The climate throughout April in Sri Lanka is unfavorable for a holiday in the sun.

April in Colombo and the West Coast of the Island

Sticky heat in the middle of days and frequent rains make the climate of Colombo unfavorable to tourist visits or walks. Indeed, the visitors risk being overwhelmed by the heat or inconvenienced by the rains.

April in Jaffna and the Extreme North of the Island

From the early hours of the day, temperatures are already high and promise a torrid heat for the rest of the day. Compared to the weather in Sri Lanka throughout April - the western part of the island, Jaffna is still acceptable due to its sunshine.

April in Trincomalee and the Northeast of the Island

Mornings and daytime environments are favored by a more mild weather as rains are scarce and heat is acceptable. We must, however, forget night strolls because the rains are often present and very intense.

April in Nuwara Eliya and the Central Plain

Do not account the climate of Nuwara Eliya for excursions to the great outdoors. It rains intensely throughout the month of April. Even if the heat is acceptable, the weather is bad.

Where should you go in Sri Lanka in april when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in Sri Lanka in april ranges from tolerable to very bad depending on the region and city.

warning in april the weather varied depending on the city and regions of the country.

April is not the best month to go to in Sri Lanka. The weather in Wilpattu National Park, Arugam Bay, Trincomalee, Dambulla, Hikkaduwa, Puttalam, Batticaloa, Negombo, Galle, Anuradhapura and Colombo is just ok. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain regularly. Nonetheless, if you don't plan a pool & relaxation holiday in Sri Lanka but rather sightseeing or hiking, this climate may be good enough for you. In addition, there are surely fewer tourists this month.

But it is finally better than in Yala National Park, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Udawalawe National Park, Neluwa, Bentota, Ella, Kalutara and Jaffna and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is not advisable to visit these areas this month.
