Climate and Average Weather in Bahrain

It is a warm desert climate that determines Bahrain's weather. Consequently, much of the land area is naturally barren. Through irrigation, arid stretches of desert have been made greener. Without human intervention, Bahrain's landscape would look more desolate than it does now.

There is little rainfall in Bahrain. The chance of rainfall is greatest in winter (December - March) and almost negligible in summer (June - September), the average annual precipitation is 71.8 mm (2.83 in).

In summer from June until September it is very humid. This is because seas around Bahrain are very shallow and heat up quickly during summer. This produces high humidity, especially in the summer nights and evenings. In those periods, summer average temperatures may reach around 39 degrees Celsius (102 Fahrenheit) during the day and 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) during the night.

Due to the extreme heat that occurs during summer, you better travel to Bahrain in winter. This means the period November to April is therefore the best travel time. It is still well above 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) in the afternoon and the number of rainy days is limited to an average of one to three days per month.
