September weather & where to go
September offers great odds on fabulous weather throughout the country, it is an inter-monsoon month so the odd showers can be expected, but they are short and sweet. It is mainly dry and warm across Sri Lanka, with an average temperature of about 29°C. As the north-east monsoon starts to creep in towards the end of the month, you can start to expect a bit more rain. For warmer, dryer weather, best to travel earlier in the month.
The hillier Tea Country has a bit more rainfall in September, and the east coast is seeing its final few weeks of fabulous weather before it sees more rain too.
