you could have sun , rain, wind storms some times all at the same time, however weather can be different on one island to another

Espritguy is correct in that its difficult to judge what the weather will be like and that the islands themselves seem to have mini climates almost. Seems to be getting more difficult worldwide these days. However, i've been to the Maldives at the beginning of October for the past two years and have experienced excellent weather. I think we've been a little lucky but first year (2009) there was an overnight heavy shower on the first evening we arrived and then after that had no other rain. Last year we had a storm on the 2nd afternoon that lasted an hour and that was it.

Enjoy.

we were there last year, the last two weeks of October, and the weather was perfect! but when we arrived we were told that it had rained straight for a couple of days.

We went in September last year and were told that it could rain a lot in the Maldives. It never rained once in 10 days ! Our friends played safe and decided to go in April this year to avoid the risk of rain as its a good time not to rain. Yes It rained for 6 days out of 14 ¬ I think its just pot luck. We are going in June and my husband said we cant go it will rain ! But I put my foot down and we are going ! hee hee..

it is possible to have 4 or 5 consecutive days rain at that time of year. you would be unlucky, but it can and does happen.

We had bad and good weather in blocks of 3/4 days at a time. I wouldnt go for less than ten days due to my experience but you could get one extreme to the other!
