With the exception of the far southern region, which does experience a light monsoon season and cooler winds off the Indian Ocean, Oman is dry, extremely hot and humid throughout most of the year, with very little rainfall. The brief winter months do bring some mild cooling.
July, August and September are the hottest months with high temps averaging near 100°F.
Desert high temps above 120°F (in the shade) are not uncommon. Winter lows seldom fall below 55°F, except in the upper reaches of the northern mountains.
