March’s weather in detail

A predominantly dry month throughout Sri Lanka. Temperatures continue to rise along the southern and western coasts, pushing averages up towards the mid-30°C's, but a little rainfall can be expected in the later stages of the month. On the east coast, things are starting to warm up and rain showers are becoming few and far between as April approaches. March sees the start of kite-surfing season on the north-west beaches of Kalpitiya.

The Cultural Triangle, as is often the case, is expecting minimal rainfall, and temperatures are expected to hit the mid-30°C's. To the south, Kandy and the hills of the Tea Country are also at their finest as the weather warms up, taking an edge of those chilly mornings and cooler evenings. Pilgrimage season continues on Adam's Peak.
