Climate in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is located in Asia. The country is washed by three seas, such as the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal, the Laccadive Sea. Sri Lanka - has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track 33 settlements and resorts.

The climate in Sri Lanka is subequatorial and equatorial monsoon, greatly complicated by the relief and general orientation of the island from north to south. The average annual temperature in the plains is about + 29-31 ° С (seasonal fluctuations are insignificant), in the mountainous part - from + 16 ° С to + 24 ° С. The temperature of sea water all year round above + 25°C. Humidity is high and almost constantly keeps above 75%. Precipitation falls from 1000 (northern and eastern regions) to 5000 (southwest coast) mm per year. The rainy season falls on the period from May to September (southwest monsoon) and from October to April (northeast monsoon), but in different parts of the island these periods often have different time frames.

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
