June's weather in detail

Lowlands & Highlands

Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Cameron Highlands

Through the centre of the peninsular and in both Kuala Lumpur and Malacca you can expect low monthly rainfall although short tropical showers are likely in the afternoon. The region experiences an average temperature of 29 °C, lower in the Cameron Highlands due to the altitude at an average of 20 °C.

West Coast

Langkawi, Penang, Pangkor

The south-west monsoon continues to blow over the western coastline bringing with it heavier afternoon thunderstorms and choppy sea conditions, however downpours tend to be short-lived and sunshine is never far behind (avg temp: 32 °C). Pangkor Island is probably the pick of the bunch weather-wise as it is a little drier (avg temp: 32 °C).

East Coast

Kuantan, Tioman Island, Perhentian Islands, Terengganu, Redang and Kota Bharu

The good news continues on the beaches along peninsula Malaysia's east coast with plenty of sunshine and blue skies expected throughout June. This is coupled with the perfect sea conditions, meaning visitor numbers are high throughout the month, most notably at weekends (avg temp: 30 °C).
