Weather in Malaysia

Expats moving to Malaysia will quickly find themselves well acquainted with the monsoon. These seasonal winds carry torrential downpours that can cause everything from mild crop failure to disastrous flash floods.

Weather in Malaysia is heavily affected by these strong gusts. The country's seasons change as a result of the different intensities of these prevailing winds. A southwesterly wind blows from April to September and a northeasterly wind from November to February. During the transition periods in between, there are light, variable winds.

As troublesome as these currents can be, the winds are the most important mitigating factor in relieving the oppressive heat of Malaysia. High temperatures and high humidity envelop the country throughout the year. Unfortunately, the heat doesn't let up in the evenings. Expats may find managing the extreme heat a major setback to living in Malaysia.
