Weather in Oman

Desert climate and weather in OmanThe weather in Oman sees temperatures and humidity generally high throughout the country all year round. May to September are the hottest months, with temperatures easily reaching up to 54°C (129ºF). The cooler months of November to March see temperatures averaging higher than 20°C (68ºF). The heat leaves expats at risk of heat stroke and exhaustion and sensible precautions are advised. 
The south coast experiences its rainy season between June and September, and in the Jabal Akhbar and lowlands of the north, rain can fall at any time of the year. 
Oman is occasionally affected by tropical cyclones. These storm systems, which originate over the Arabian Sea, typically dump high amounts of rain on the country, which can result in severe flash flooding.

Weather in Oman is often an unaccounted for "hardship factor", and expats should keep this element in mind when negotiating an employment contract.
