Climate:

In the eastern desert areas, and along the Red Sea coast, Yemen is cloudless, hot and dry throughout most of the year; where temperatures in the high 90s (32°C) and 100s (37°C) are commonplace.

Inland, around the Sana area, and across the central mountains, temperatures do moderate; summer highs reach the mid-80s (26°C), with lows in the 60s (15°C); winter lows occasionally fall into the 30s (-1°C), but daytime highs quickly climb into the 70s (21°C).

There are two brief rainy seasons, (April - May) and (July - mid-September); during these periods, Indian Ocean monsoons bring copious amounts of rain to the western mountains and valleys.
