What's the Weather Like in Kuala Lumpur in May

The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, is an exotic yet ultra-modern metropolis that attracts millions of tourist on an annual basis with its unique culture, low prices and unsurpassed entertainment. It is the world's sixth most visited city as well as a bustling financial epicentre of the Asian economy. People love the city for its clean roads, fairweather and cheerful atmosphere, many of them considering Kuala Lumpur to be the jewel of Southeastern Asia.

Rainfall

In May, Malaysian spring is in full swing. This is the month that marks the beginning of the dry season. May receives 190mm of rainfall in total, the first time that that number has dropped below 200 since last September. May is actually the fourth driest month of the year, after the following three months of June, July and August. However, there are still 17 days with rainfall during this month (or 14 days without rainfall, if you will). The chance that it will rain on any given day in May decreases over the course of the month

Sunshine Hours

While cloud cover remains rather hight is fairly cloudy all-year roundhe sun shines for 8 hours each day on average. The dry season, and all the months that fall within it, is also the sunniest time of the year. This number of 8 daily sunshine hours will remain constant through September.

Temperature

Temperature-wise, May is a month like all others. The average air temperature is 28°C, which is the case in seven months of the year, from February through to August. At night, the temperature rarely dips below the average low of 24°C, while during the afternoon, average high temperatures of 32°C are recorded.

Anyone planning a visit to this magnificent metropolis should check out our detailed weather forecast.
