Seasons and Climate

About Saudia Arabia's Weather

As most of Saudi Arabia is a desert-like plateau, the weather usually remain stable throughout the Kingdom. Climatic differences can only be felt between coastal and inland areas. There are four major seasons in Saudi Arabia: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. The summer in the country is hot and dry, with very little to no rainfall. On the other hand, winters are mild with the expectations of rain and snowfall in some regions. Mountains in the north can experience moderate snowfall during winters.

During the period from mid-March to mid-June, Saudi Arabia experiences brisk spring weather, especially in the northern region, with nighttime temperatures sometimes dropping below 15 degrees Celsius. The central and southern parts of the country are relatively warmer, with average temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius after nightfall. Spring brings higher rainfall, particularly in the central region and southwest areas, notably over the Aseer Mountains.

When preparing for your trip, remember to pack appropriately by including layers such as light sweaters, scarves, or pashminas. Additionally, don’t forget to bring a rain jacket and sunglasses to be prepared for varying weather conditions.

Spring

From mid-June to mid-September, summer sets in with soaring temperatures across most of Saudi Arabia, except for the relatively mild highlands in the southwest. The average temperature hovers around 45 degrees Celsius during this season. While the early mornings and evenings offer more moderate temperatures, it’s an ideal time to make the most of the warm seas by exploring Saudi Arabia’s excellent scuba diving spots or engaging in sailing and snorkeling activities.

When packing for your summer trip, make sure to bring essential items to protect yourself from the intense heat. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses, water shoes, and a hat to shield your face from the sun’s rays. These preparations will help ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience during your stay.

Summer

From mid-September to mid-December, Saudi Arabia experiences the pleasant season of autumn, characterized by milder weather and refreshing cool breezes in both the northern regions and the southwestern highlands. Although daytime temperatures remain warm and can reach the 30s Celsius in early fall, the evenings become more comfortable and suitable for outdoor activities like strolling. This is an excellent time to enjoy leisurely walks along Jeddah’s waterfront, savoring al-fresco dining experiences, or visiting the refreshing cool desert springs of Al Ahsa.

As you prepare for your trip during autumn, be sure to pack appropriate items for the changing weather. Bring along comfortable walking shoes to explore the outdoor attractions, and consider carrying a sweater to stay cozy in air-conditioned buildings and during the cooler evenings. These essentials will help you make the most of your autumn adventures in Saudi Arabia.

Autumn

From mid-December to mid-March, Saudi Arabia offers a beautiful winter season, perfect for exploring the diverse landscapes of the kingdom. The weather during this time is characterized by balmy days and cool nights, providing an excellent opportunity for various outdoor activities. Whether you’re interested in camping, rock climbing, or exploring the verdant highlands and vibrant cities like Riyadh and Jeddah, the winter months are ideal.

The average winter temperatures typically range in the teens, making it comfortable for outdoor adventures. Moreover, in the northern regions, visitors may even be fortunate enough to witness snowfall, which blankets the slopes and desert sands, creating a picturesque scene.
