Climate

Though Sri Lanka is a relatively small island country, its climate varies a lot depending on the levels on which the monsoons affect each region.
In many areas the temperature is around 29 to 31°C throughout the year, though there may be some 2 to 3 °C differences. But in the Central Highlands including Nuwara Eliya, it is averagely 16°C, which makes it feel like spring all year round. You need an outerwear in the morning in these areas.
April is said to be the hottest season in a year. Southwest monsoon comes after that, from May to September, which brings much rain on the southwest coastal areas or the highlands, though little on the northeast parts including Jaffna or Trincomalee, in which it is the dry season.

Then from December to March, there is less rain in the southwest areas which includes many beach resorts, and it is the best season for the areas. On the contrary, northeast parts experience lots of rain brought by the monsoon from Bay of Bengal.
