Hi there...

A little unsettled right now, which is to be expected, and you can keep up to date with this website...

Hi again...

Forgot to add, towards end of July and into August it won't be too bad, plenty of hot sunny spells, but you may get an odd rain shower late afternoon/evening time, but overall pretty good..

Hi there, we are off to Kalutara on 4 July and the weather forecast looks like Blackpool. Can you give me some hope that it will still be hot enough to lounge by the pool or are we being too optimistic? Knew it wasn't going to be boiling but don't want to be stuck under shelter for 2 weeks? lol

Hi,

First half of July is usually still in the 1st inter monsoon season with quite unsettled weather.

You may experience 3 types of days:

- Fully clouded with the odd shower, light or heavy

- 3-4 hours sunshine after 8 am and clouds building up in the afternoon with hefty thundershowers late afternoon, evening and night

- sun-clouds-rain-sun again and so on with the sunny spells lasting at least an hour and minimum 4 hours per day.

Minimum day temps in Kalutara will rarely go below 28C.

Hi Jenni...

Don't worry too much, it will NOT rain all day everyday, and in between any showers it will certainly be hot enough to lounge by the pool ect..., be VERY careful of the sun out there, it is VERY powerful being so close to the Equator, without proper protection you will burn quite quickly !

Thanks guys... I suppose there is more to life than sunbathing and I'm sure that Sri Lanka will keep us occupied. Just one more thing, do you suggest bringing rain jackets/cardigan ie. Is there a chill in the air or is it still hot and humid?

Hi again Jenni...

The evening/night temps will still be VERY warm and humid around Kalutara, and indeed all western coastal areas, the only place you may need a cardi/jumper is Nuwara Eliya if you plan staying overnight, but even then probably you will be wearing similar for your flight out?, so nothing extra needed.

Rain jackets ?, complete waste of time, you will sweat so much wearing this type of clothing, if needed, buy a cheap brolly locally...

Regards

Dave
