Saudi Arabia has mainly two seasons: Summer and Winter.

Rainfall is low in the country, especially in the central region. Here, normally, a change in season is preceded by a rain or dust storm. The dusty season usually takes around 40 days to conclude with the dust storm hitting then letting up every few days.

In the southwestern coastal areas it rains quite regularly with high humidity in the summer, but there is very little rainfall in the capital city of Riyadh and the northern parts of the Red Sea coast.

The peak winter falls during the months of December and January while peak summer hits during June and July.

From May to September, daytime temperature reaches 45oC or higher throughout the country with slightly cooler coastal temperatures.

In the peak winter, temperatures in the main cities (except Jeddah), drops considerably during the day and even hit zero during night (especially in the central region). During winter, the mountains can also be shrouded in fog.

In the desert: During peak winter (December-January): The breadth of temperature between day and night in the desert is very important. At night, temperature usually drops quite radically and is often well below zero degrees.

During peak Summer (June-July): Too hot. Temperature during the night is hot. August-October: It is rather hot during the day. Evenings are warmer.
