Weather in Bahrain

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. Weather in Bahrain is marked by extreme heat and an uncomfortable humidity 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 with the mercury hovering between 50 and 68°F (10 and 20°C).

The archipelago is incredibly arid with only irregular short, heavy bursts of rainfall throughout winter. This period also brings the shamal –  strong winds that bring damp, humid air into the country and cause sandstorms.

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.
