The best time of year to visit Bagdad in Iraq

Baghdad is in terms of maximum temperatures one of the hottest cities in the world. Even at night temperatures in summer are seldom below 24 ° Celsius (75 °Fahrenheit). Because the humidity is very low (usually under 10 percent) due to Baghdad's distance from the Persian Gulf, dust storms from the deserts are a normal occurrence during summer.

Low temperatures can be chilly: the average January low is 3.8 °Celsius (38.8 °Fahrenheit) but lows below freezing also occur a couple of times per year. On January 11, 2008, light snow fell across Baghdad for the first time.
