When Does Bali's Wet Season End?

While it varies from year to year, Wet Season in Bali usually begins sometime in October and continues through April. Average temperatures tend to be more humid and slightly warmer during Wet Season, and of course significantly more rainfall.October/November and March/April tend to be transitional periods, with a mix of weather patterns.
It seems like the Dry Season is really yet to arrive here in Bali. This May has been rather strange, with far more weather patterns typically associated with Wet Season. It's been hot and humid, raining often in the afternoons and nights, and less trade wind activity (winds blowing East or Southeast). This has led to welcome surf opportunities at breaks usually not surfed this time of year, allowing me and few other like-minded surfers to avoid the crowds associated with Bali's western Bukit coast (spots like Uluwatu, Padang Padang, and Bingin).
