Generally speaking Malaysia is split into wet and dry seasons, however these occur at different times in different areas of the country.

Peninsular Malaysia experiences an equatorial climate, meaning that for most of the year temperatures are hot and humidity high. There are slight variations through the seasons but the most distinctive variation occurs with the onset of the monsoon, and the torrential rains it brings.

In East Peninsular Malaysia the monsoon occurs between Nov-Feb. The rest of the peninsula has two distinctive wet seasons, between Oct-Nov and Apr-May. Inland areas experience a relatively even spread of rainfall throughout the year, though typhoons and coastal storms do occur.
