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. Dust storms from the Arabian Peninsula's deserts or from North Africa punctuate the summer months. Rainfall occurs infrequently, even in winter, but is most likely in the month of December when thunderstorms are common. Don't expect minimum winter temperatures to drop below 68°F (20°C).
