Weather details in december

Some regions see their climate improve, while for others - climatic conditions are deteriorating. The climate throughout December in Sri Lanka is, however, mediocre.

December in Colombo and the West Coast of the Island

The climate of Colombo is more clement, despite the abundance of rain because it usually occurs at night, allowing the tourists the opportunity to enjoy beautiful sunny days.

December in Jaffna and the Extreme North of the Island

The month of December is not famous for visiting Jaffna. Rainfall has increased in intensity and frequency. The sun can only make its way through a few thinnings.

December in Trincomalee and the Northeast of the Island

The weather in Sri Lanka throughout December is far from ideal - in Trincomalee, as elsewhere. The mornings are foggy and the rest of the day is rainy, most of the time.

December in Nuwara Eliya and the Central Plain

Despite the freshness of the atmosphere, the weather in Nuwara Eliya is still bad. The rains are indeed very abundant and the chance of having a magnificent sunshine is very slight.

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

Remember:
The climate in Sri Lanka in december ranges from good to tolerable depending on the region and city.

warning in december the weather is different depending on the city and regions of the country.

That month is not the best month to go to in Sri Lanka. The weather in Wilpattu National Park, Trincomalee, Dambulla, Yala National Park, Hikkaduwa, Puttalam, Negombo, Galle, Anuradhapura, Bentota, Colombo and Kalutara is quite correct. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain frequently. Nonetheless, if you don't plan a beach and sun travel in Sri Lanka but rather city tours or walking, this climate may be enough. In addition, there are definitely fewer tourists at this time of year.

It's even worse in Arugam Bay, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Batticaloa, Udawalawe National Park, Neluwa, Ella and Jaffna and surrounding areas where the climate is even worse. It is not recommended to visit these areas in december.
