Oman generally has high temperatures and humidity all year round. May to September are the hottest months, with temperatures easily reaching up to 129ºF (54°C). The cooler months of November to March see temperatures averaging higher than 68ºF (20°C). The heat puts expats at risk of heatstroke and exhaustion, so sensible health and safety precautions are advised.

The south coast experiences its rainy season between June and September, and in the Jabal Akhdar 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 unaccounted for as a hardship factor, but expats should keep this element in mind when negotiating an employment contract.
