July’s weather in detail

Whilst it’s difficult to predict the end of the monsoon rains, the south and west of Sri Lanka sees less rainfall and clearer skies as July progresses, although short, sharp showers should still be expected. On the flip side, the north of the island and the eastern beaches of Trincomalee and Passekudah are experiencing dry, bright weather and sun-worshippers should head here for guaranteed sunshine.

Pleasant average temperatures of 29-30°C can be expected across the whole of the island during July, although the Cultural Triangle region will be warmer than the coast, and the hills around Tea Country and Kandy will be a little cooler, especially in the evenings.
