Oman Oman Weather
November is a pleasant month for holidays in Oman, as the heat of the previous summer season and the cold winter season have returned to more reasonable levels. October is officially the last month of the hot summer season, and the high temperatures of these days hardly bode well.
Although winter is the rainy season, rainfall peaks at the end of November or early December.
The average maximum temperature during the month is 23 degrees Celsius, and the average minimum temperature can be above 30 degrees Celsius (46 degrees Celsius) in some parts of the country. The average coastal area is hot and humid, with humidity above 90%. It is also very hot and humid in coastal areas, while the interior generally remains hot but dry. Average rainfall is low year-round, especially in northern and central Oman, but also in southern and eastern Oman.
The best time to brave the heat in Oman is in the summer months, when the daytime temperature in Muscat is expected to be around 30 degrees. The most popular times to visit are when the weather is warm and sunny and the temperature is between a pleasant 25 degrees on some days and about 35 degrees during the day. Temperatures rise during the winter months and fall to 31-32 degrees in April, May and June when they reach 35 degrees or 95 degrees. Rainfall remains scarce, especially in the north and centre of Oman, but also in the south and east of the country.
The daytime temperature in Oman is pleasant and reaches highs of 40 degrees in June, but falls to around 30 degrees at night. Hot days and balmy nights are expected in April, May, June and July, with temperatures around 30 and below 40 degrees.
It does not normally rain, but it can drizzle slightly during the official months of July and August, as well as in the winter months of February, March, April, May, June and July. Clouds can form in the early morning and late afternoon, and in July, August and September they can be particularly heavy in the late evening and early morning hours.
When it rains, it usually falls in the early morning and late evening hours, and is caused by a combination of cloud cover and a high pressure system over the Gulf of Oman. Rain is known to cause flooding, especially in Muscat and its towns near the entrance to the Persian Gulf. In the winter months of February, March, April, May, June and July, as well as in July and August, it can rain for several hours at a time. A "dry period," as it is locally known, causes continuous rain and drizzle in and around the city.
A cold frontal trough, originating from the North Atlantic or the Mediterranean, is responsible for frequent rain north of Oman during this time. In summer, from June to September, a tropical continental air mass brings hot and very dry air to the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf of Aden. The clouds are being brought in from the east coast, but also from a tropical cyclone over the Persian Gulf.
Winter temperatures were pleasant, but the daily average was slightly warmer than the average for this time of year in recent years. The days are sunny with a sigh of significant rainfall and without clouds, and the sky is shaking sky - blue.
It is a great time to enjoy the beaches and the many water sports, even if the sunny weather is marred by little more than occasional drizzle.
The weather in Oman, especially in Muscat in January, is very hot, with temperatures ranging from -30 to -20 degrees. Most of Oman is reliably hot during the summer months, with scorching temperatures of up to 30 degrees Celsius, but in the winter months MusCat averages around 25 degrees C. Note that the late summer and early winter, usually between January and February, are ideal for holiday weather. The weather at night is also very hot, which provides a great opportunity to shop in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and other parts of the Middle East while driving to Oman and enjoying the traditional nightlife of Oman.
In mid-July, Spain recorded the highest temperature ever recorded when it hit the southern airport of Cordoba. On 5 June 2007, Cyclone Phet hit Oman and fell 450 mm in the northeast of Oman. This was the strongest on record for the Arabian Sea, with over 900 mm of rain in a single day on 5 June 2007 and average wind speeds of 130 km / h.
By 2070, it is expected to get 20 mm or more of rainfall per year and is forecasting an average annual rainfall rate of 2.5 mm per year, the highest in the world.
