    Malaysia weather August

    What’s the weather like in Malaysia in August?

    Located in southeast Asia, Malaysia has a tropical monsoon climate with different weather systems across the lowlands, highlands and coasts. From May to October the southwest monsoon brings wet weather to the west coast islands including Penang, but even in the monsoon season any rain will be heavy but short-lived. For the most sun and driest conditions, it’s worth visiting the beaches on the east coast or the capital Kuala Lumpur.

    Averages

    At this time of year Kuala Lumpur has an average temperature of 28°C and with highs of 32°C in the afternoons you’ll need to seek shade and wear plenty of sun cream. At night temperatures dip to around 23°C, so you’ll be grateful for your air-conditioned hotel. The capital’s in the dry season at this time of year and with around 160mm of rain expected during the month any wet weather is short and sharp. In Penang, which is in the monsoon season in August, you’ll be greeted by average temperatures of 27°C, 190mm of rain across the month and plenty of sunshine.
