Weather details in october

The month of October corresponds to the beginning of the great monsoon. The climate throughout October in Sri Lanka is again influenced by the abundance of rains affecting most of the island's localities.

October in Colombo and the West Coast of the Island

The heat intensifies in Colombo, especially during the twenty days of the month. On the other hand, the rainfall regresses a little, yet remains very abundant.

October in Jaffna and the Extreme North of the Island

The monsoon affects the locality of Jaffna more than other localities. The mornings remain very wet throughout the month. However, the rest of the day is beautiful - especially since the heat is pleasant from morning to night.

October in Trincomalee and the Northeast of the Island

In spite of the strong heat felt in Trincomalee and its surroundings, the weather in Sri Lanka throughout October remains favorable because the rains occur only during the night.

October in Nuwara Eliya and the Central Plain

The heat is pleasant, but the rain is so abundant that every day experiences intense showers during both day and at night.

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

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

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

You are lucky: It is not perfect, however, the weather in Sri Lanka that month is, on average, quite good in Trincomalee. I allows to enjoy sightseeing in this place. And even why not take a little time to sunbathe!

If you do not go for the sun or the beach, but, for example to discover the heritage, the cities of Wilpattu National Park, Arugam Bay, Dambulla, Hikkaduwa, Puttalam, Batticaloa, Negombo, Galle, Anuradhapura, Bentota, Colombo, Kalutara and Jaffna have a decent enough weather for this kind of activity in october. Eventually, we advise you to avoid you get to Yala National Park, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Udawalawe National Park, Neluwa and Ella that month because the climate is rather unfavorable.
