Weather details in november

The weather is cooling in November, but due to the increase in rainfall - the climate throughout November in Sri Lanka is acceptable throughout the country except for the Central Plain, which has a high rainfall intensity.

November in Colombo and the West Coast of the Island

Same as in the previous month, the climate in Colombo and the west coast in general is dominated by high heat and humidity. Rain occurs mostly in the morning and in the evening, favoring cloud thinnings between showers.

November in Jaffna and the Extreme North of the Island

It is still hot in Jaffna and the showers are even more intense. Rain falls less often but lasts longer. For this reason, one will have time to benefit from sunny days from morning to evening, especially in mid-November.

November in Trincomalee and the Northeast of the Island

The weather in Sri Lanka throughout November in Trincomalee is disadvantaged by the sharp rise in weather. The great monsoon is, indeed, very dominant on this part of the island. For this reason, expect a few showers during the day as well as late at night.

November in Nuwara Eliya and the Central Plain

The Central Plain is experiencing a drop in heat, however if one is travelling for some sun - disappointment is possible here. Nuwara Eliya is very rainy throughout the entire month of November

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

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

warning in november the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

November is not the best month to spend holidays in Sri Lanka. The weather in Wilpattu National Park, Arugam Bay, Trincomalee, Dambulla, Hikkaduwa, Puttalam, Batticaloa, Negombo, Galle, Anuradhapura, Bentota, Colombo, Kalutara and Jaffna is OK but just acceptable. The sun is not there all the time and you risk you to be soaked by rain regularly. Nonetheless, if you don't plan a beach and relaxation holiday in Sri Lanka but rather nature excursions, this climate may be good enough for you. In addition, there are surely fewer tourists this month.

But it gets worse: in Yala National Park, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Udawalawe National Park, Neluwa and Ella and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. We really do not recommend you to visit these areas this month.
