Almost the whole of Sri Lanka experiences tropical type of climate. The location of Sri Lanka is a very decisive factor so far as Sri Lanka Weather is concerned. Sri Lanka is situated on the northern part of equator and lies in close proximity to the Equator. It is situated in between 6?N to 10?N of the latitude and 80?E to 82?E of the longitude. Thus, the average temperature of Sri Lanka remains in between 27 ?C to 29?C. However, as the island is not so big, the blowing sea-wind brings some soothing affect. Temperature in the central highland region is low compared to the rest of the island.
Rainfall in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka receives most of its rainfall from the monsoon winds. In between May and July, the south west monsoon winds bring rain to the western, central and southern areas of the Sri Lanka. Again, in the months of December and January, most of the rain occurs in the northern and eastern part of the island which is brought by the north east monsoon winds.
Thus, it can be concluded Sri Lanka Weather is marked by very little diversity.
