With the equatorial climate that Malaysia experiences, the weather in Kuala Lumpur is hot and humid all throughout the year. It has two monsoon seasons, namely the Southwest Monsoon from late May to September and the Northeast Monsoon from November to March.
The weather throughout the country is, for the most part, affected by the monsoons and the height above the sea level of a city, suburb or a rural area. There are, however, heavy rains distributed randomly all over the year, and most of them occur in late afternoons and in the evenings. The temperature from month to month varies slightly.

The humidity averages at 58 to 66 percent on a monthly basis and about 70 percent on a yearly basis. [Read more…]
