Jeddah Climate & Weather

Jeddah Climate and Weather

Jeddah features an arid climate, and unlike many other Saudi Arabian cities, it retains its warmth during the winter months from November to February. Summer temperatures see the mercury reaching extreme temperatures, sometimes soaring above the 104°F (40°C) mark in the afternoons and hovering around 86°F (30°C) in the mornings and evenings. The summer months are punctuated with dust storms which come from the Arabian Peninsula's deserts or from North Africa. During the winter months rainfall in Jeddah is infrequent but is most common in the month of December when winter thunderstorms are also common.
