Kota Kinabalu in June / July

Can anyone tell me if it is likely to be cloudy during June and July in KK? I realise there will be rainy days due to the season but from people's experience is it generally overcast at this time of year, or can I expect to see a lot of sushine? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

It may or may not be cloudy during the day but that will not affect the the heat. The weather does not vary a lot during the year due to various climatic and geographic conditions. Generally it is hot(around 30 -34C), humid with a storm late afternoon or evening.

Read this link as it includes good advice on how to handle climatic conditions and other useful information.

Thanks for your response, it was more the amount of sunshine I would like to know about, not so much the heat - do you think I would be likely to still see a lot of sun at this time of year there? Thanks again for your help

What I mean is that the amount of sun you will see varies little according to the time of year. You may or may not see a lot or very little sun on individual days but you will certainly see a fair bit some days., It is very hard to predict.

Great, thanks so much - one more question, do you know if malaria tablets are needed if visiting Mount Kinabalu?

You should not ask for advice on medications from unqualified people. They do not know your medication or medical history. See your medical practitioner.
