The weather in the Maldives is split into the North-Easterly Season(December to May) and the Westerly Season (May to December).
Although the hours of sunshine do not differ very much between the seasons (8 hours average per day), occasional rain falls mainly during the Westerly Season.
The wind in the dry season is light to moderate from the Nort-East, in the wet season it is typically moderate from the South-West. Squalls rarely bring more than 30 knots of wind.
This makes the Maldives a year-round destination with a low season from June to August.
