Weather details in march

March is a good time to discover the extreme north and the northeast coast of the island. The climate throughout March in Sri Lanka in these regions is still pleasant.

March in Colombo and the West Coast of the Island

In Colombo, temperatures continue to climb. As the rains fall intermittently during the day and more often in the evening, this leaves one with magnificent cloud thinnings to relax.

March in Jaffna and the Extreme North of the Island

The heat begins to intensify in Jaffna, but it remains bearable very early and at the end of the day. The weather in Sri Lanka throughout March is beautiful, thanks to the stronger presence of the sun.

March in Trincomalee and the Northeast of the Island

The northeastern part of the island is particularly pleasant because the heat is comfortable while the regression of the rain provides beautiful days of sunshine, that are of course more numerous.

March in Nuwara Eliya and the Central Plain

The month of March is very rainy on the high plateaus. In Nuwara Eliya, each day sees falling showers. This makes the atmosphere uncomfortable despite the less overwhelming heat.
