The Maldives benefits from their location near the Equator, which offers stable temperatures throughout the year and protection from cyclones.
Their climate is tropical equatorial, generally humid and warm with 2 seasons called Monsoons.
With a distance of 800 km from North to South and the Equator crossing the country, the weather conditions will vary according to your location in the archipelago.
As a consequence, standard weather forecast* for Male ( center North Maldives ) will not be valid for the entire archipelago and the most Southern part, under the Equator, will require forecasts for Gan.
*Maldives current weather conditions based on Male location.
The year is divided into 2 monsoons in Maldives :
the summer monsoon and the winter monsoon.
Although global temperatures do not fluctuate much along the year, each monsoon brings very different weather conditions in term of rain, sunshine and winds.
It is usually advised to to choose the so-called "dry" season, from October / November until April. September is in theory (and in theory only) a little less "risky" than June / July / August months when the rainy monsoon can still be (very) active to very active. It sometimes goes on until October.
However, beautiful September months have been also seen, with a few showers only quickly replaced by a beautiful sun. We saw, for example, in the past years, an early and powerful rainy season that heavily started in May ( strong winds and rains are usually happening later on ) to extend itself until December.
Just like anywhere else, Maldives Weather forecast is not an exact science
Predicting the weather in the Maldives is like forecasting the weather in Europe or in NYC in the summer ( yes, Maldives climate is also changing ).
Forecasts and reality can be very confusing.
The best idea is not to rely too much on general weather information generally published on the web or in travel brochures. A nasty surprise could wait for you, even in Maldives...
November is theoretically safer. But again, perhaps will the weather be a little moody at this period too. In any case, nevertheless, you can leave with light heart as you surely will have some beautiful days during your stay.
