In the tropics temperature is not a factor of much concern for travel. But heavy rain during the monsoons in Southeast Asia can cause inconvenience in certain months. For example:

K. Terengganu (east coast) - November, December
Kuching - January, February 
K. Kinabalu -  no peak (>500mm) rainy months

Tanah Rata - no peak rainy months but heavy rain can cause land slides
Padang - October, November, December

Singapore and Jakarta - no peak rainy months

Banjarmasin - no peak rainy months
Ambon - May, June, July, August

Manila - rainy in July, August and typhoons

Rangoon - June, July, August but dusty in December, January, February, March

Bangkok - no peak rainy months but dusty in December and January

Ho Chi Minh - no peak rainy months but dusty in January
Hanoi - no peak rainy months

In the temperate countries, the winters can be very cold and snowy.
Tashkent (Uzbekistan) and Konya (Turkey) - below 0 in January
