Weather details in august

The climate throughout August in Sri Lanka is characterized by renewed rainfall throughout its territory. The monsoon is still present. All the localities see their climate influenced by the abundance of rain and this, in spite of a rather comfortable warmth because the temperatures continue to decrease progressively in the morning.

August in Colombo and the West Coast of the Island

The chances of having beautiful sunny days are smaller on the west coast in August. Compared to July, rains in August are more frequent and more intense. Sometimes the showers intensify even more during the day, especially towards the end of the month.

August in Jaffna and the Extreme North of the Island

Admittedly, Jaffna is experiencing a renewal of rain in August but its intensity and frequency are less important compared to those of Colombo. This allows one to enjoy the sun and warmth.

August in Trincomalee and the Northeast of the Island

The atmosphere is warmer in Trincomalee and its surroundings. Morning temperatures are around 24° C, but daytime environments are 10° C higher. The climate is drier, which favors a weather in Sri Lanka throughout August more comfortable, with more sun. Especially since the sea wind makes it possible to feel comfort.

August in Nuwara Eliya and the Central Plain

The August weather in Sri Lanka, in the Central Plain, is identical to that of July except that the rains have increased in intensity and frequency. Expect then to have rainy afternoons and evenings.

Good news: It is not ideal 100%, but the weather in Sri Lanka in august is quite good in Wilpattu National Park, Trincomalee, Dambulla and Anuradhapura. I allows to savor sightseeing in these places. And even why not take a little time to enjoy the hotel pool!
