weather in unawatuna late june


We are half way through our trip round sri lanka and have booked a few nights in unawatuna for the end of July. But we are unsure what the weather is like and therfore if we should stay on the east coast.

Can anyone tell us how rainy it is likely to be at the end of june? We don't mind an hour or two of rain a day but dont want to be sat on a beach for three days if it is raining solid!

East coast is best in June.

In Unawatuna 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.

July 1st:

It was not too bad in June, we had quite a lot of sunny hours with occasional outburst and rain in the night.

Heavy rains were experienced in the hills specially catchment areas so much so that all main reservoirs were spilling over.

As the Esala season's main attraction, the Temple of the Tooth processions would be in August, there's likely to be less tourists in July.

As lot of new destinations have opened up the tourists are very much spread out, however if you shun touristy crowds keep away from top destinations like Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna, Mirissa.
