Hi there.....

Weather in late October ??, well you said to be honest, it will i am affraid be quite unsettled !, with quite a few rainy days, but it won't rain all day everyday, you will see some suny times too..

This is for the western coastal areas, including Colombo..

Regards

Dave

Yes, true. However first half of October on southwest coast tends to be 'mostly okay but slowly gearing towards the unsettled intermonsoon'. And on east coast first half will still have gorgeous sunny weather, nearing the end of their season. It better should have so this time too, we're touring that part this year October...

All the best,

Hi there,

We are planning on travelling to West Coast of Sri Lanka late October for Honeymoon. So will it be a complete wash-out? Then going onto The Maldives beginning November.

Thanks

Well, on some days it could be bad yes. On others quite decent. See the recently added top question

that tries to paint a balanced picture...

All the best,

Weather patterns in Sri Lanka can be quite unpredictable.

It is usually quite wet at the end of October - one of the wettest months on the west coast.

Here at the end of April the usual weather pattern is afternoon/evening showers, but since Monday morning it has been showers on and off all day and all night. Who knows, maybe you will have brilliant weather in October.
