Seasons in Malaysia
There are two monsoons that hit each year. The eastern side gets hit the hardest between October till January with much rainfall and thunderstorms. A mountain range that cuts through the centre of the country provides a light shield to the eastern monsoon, but and other cities on the west still receive much rainfall and storms during this time. From March to April, there is another monsoon that comes from the west and hits places like Kuala Lumpur directly, bringing the most rainfall to Kuala Lumpur.
This means that for most of the year, Kuala Lumpur is peppered with showers and occasional thunderstorms. The driest periods are usually between May till July, where there is a respite from the monsoon seasons. However, the storms when they do come are relatively short, and the rains actually bring a cooling atmosphere to the city. For tourists and visitors, this means that Kuala Lumpur is suitable for visits all-year-round, with no particular period or season to avoid.
