Saudi Arabia Climate
Extreme heat and aridity are characteristic of most of Saudi Arabia. It is one of the few places in the world besides Northern Africa, United States, and Mexico where summer temperatures above 50 °C have been recorded, with 51.1 °C being the highest temperature ever recorded in Saudi Arabia at Dhahran in 1956. In winter, frost or snow can occur in the interior and the higher mountains, although this only occurs once or twice in a decade. The lowest recorded temperature is −12 °C, recorded at Turaif. The average winter temperature ranges from 8 to 20 °C in January in interior cities such as Riyadh and 19°C to 29°C in Jeddah, on the Red Sea coast. The average summer temperature range is 27 to 43 °C in Riyadh and 27 to 38 °C in Jeddah. Nighttime temperatures in the central deserts can be famously chilly even in summer, as the sand gives up daytime heat rapidly once the sun has set. Annual precipitation is usually sparse, although sudden downpours can lead to violent flash floods in wadis. Annual rainfall in Riyadh averages 100 mm and falls almost exclusively between January and May; the average in Jeddah is 54 mm and occurs between November and January.
