What’s the weather like in Bali in January?
Bali has a tropical climate as it’s just eight degrees south of the equator. This means there are high temperatures all year round, although January’s in the wet season. The western monsoon brings wetter weather from late October to April, while the eastern monsoon from May to late October has drier weather. You’ll still get plenty of sun if you’re going in January, and when it rains, it’s usually in heavy downpours that quickly clear. Mount Agung’s one the peaks that top 3,000m in Bali’s centre. The climate is warmer and drier the further away from the mountains you are.
Popular Kuta in the south gives a good ides of Bali’s weather and has an average high of 31ºC in January. This only falls to 24ºC at night, so it’s perfect for a lovely and warm winter holiday. The sea temperature is 29ºC, while humidity’s very high. There’s 325mm of rain over 19 days, although you can still expect 13 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be extremely high so don’t forget to bring your sun cream. The sun goes down at around 6.45pm.
