See Rangoon Weather and Mandalay Weather

Much of Myanmar lies between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator and in the monsoon region of Asia, with its coastal regions receiving over 5,000 millimetres (197 in) annually.

Annual rainfall in the delta region is approximately 2,500 millimetres (98 in), while average annual rainfall in the Dry Zone, which is located in central Myanmar, is less than 1,000 millimetres (39 in).  Northern regions of the country are the coolest, with average temperatures of 21 C (70F). Coastal and delta regions have mean temperatures of 32 C (90F).

The climate is monsoonal, with three distinct seasons: a rainy season from June to October, a cooler and drier "winter" from November to February, and a hot dry season from March to May.

The winter season from November to January is markedly less humid and cooler than the remaining months, and hence sees the greatest number of visitors.  Nevertheless, major festivals occur throughout the year, notably Thingyan (the water festival, equivalent to the Thai festival of Songkran), in April.  (Festivals are keyed to the lunar cycle, specifically to the full-moon days of each lunar month, and therefore fall on different days each year of the Western, solar-based, calendar).
