Weather in May

May represents the final transition from the wet season to the dry season on Christmas Island. The rainfall continues to decline, usually staying below 100mm (3.94") for the month. Temperatures during May remain fairly stable, typically oscillating between 23°C (73.4°F) to 26°C (78.8°F).

In Flying Fish Cove, the main populated area on the island, weather conditions continue to reflect those of the island as a whole. The frequency and intensity of rain showers further decrease, and clear sky days become more common as the month advances.

When compared to April, May brings about a noticeable reduction in rainfall. The temperature continues its steady pattern, showing minimal variation from the previous month or the upcoming month of June. These consistent conditions illustrate the characteristics of the island's tropical monsoon climate, marked by a gradual shift from wet to dry rather than abrupt changes. The daylight duration stays relatively constant, with sunrise around 6:30 AM and sunset close to 6:30 PM.

May presents an increasingly favorable time for outdoor activities and exploration as the rainfall diminishes. The wildlife activity remains vibrant, but the decrease in rainfall may lead to subtle shifts in the behavior and visibility of certain species. As always in transitional periods, a degree of adaptability is beneficial for outdoor plans to accommodate possible weather changes.
