Expats planning on living in Bahrain may find one of the most difficult adjustments they'll have to make is acclimating to the high temperatures. The weather in Bahrain is marked by extreme heat and an uncomfortable humidity is present throughout the year.

Summer is from April to October, with temperatures averaging 104°F (40°C). Winter is from November to March. Though milder in comparison, winter temperatures can still be fairly warm and hover between 50 and 68°F (10 and 20°C).

The archipelago is incredibly arid with only irregular short, heavy bursts of rainfall throughout winter. The spring and summer months, on the other hand, are marked by the shamal – strong winds that bring damp, humid air into the country and cause sandstorms – although these do not occur regularly. 

Expats should be forewarned that the weather in Bahrain can cause heat exhaustion or heat stroke, especially for those not used to such high temperatures. It's best to stay indoors during the day's hottest hours and sunscreen is advised. Expats should also be sure to stay hydrated.
