Sri Lanka weather & when to go: June

Sri Lanka June weather overview

The western and southern coastal areas of Sri Lanka, as well as the Tea Country, remain under the influence of the summer monsoon in June, which is blowing in from the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal. The winds hit the hills, creating increased rainfall in the west and along the south coast, although this is not as high as the previous month.

June’s weather in detail

Despite the monsoon, it is not unusual to go a number of days without any rain or just the odd tropical downpour in the afternoons, making beach days still very much a possibility during June (although the higher sea levels should be considered in some areas). 

Temperatures remain high along the coast (avg temp: 28 °C), whilst it can be chilly up in the hills, especially at night. Swimming in the sea on the south and west coasts during June is often not recommended. Many hotels will have their red flags out to indicate that sea bathing can be dangerous. Having said that, June is generally a month with good weather and water sports and outdoor activities are OK.

It’s a different story in the north and along the east coast, with dry and bright weather expected as beach lovers turn their attention to the east coast beaches. Further north in the Cultural Triangle, temperatures remain high and rainfall is at a minimum (avg temp: 32 °C).
