Climate:
From a climatic point of view, the territory of Oman is subdivided into three zones: northeast where the climate is Mediterranean; southwest under the tropical influx with the winds of the Khareef season, (from June to September) that bring fresh air; central part, characterized by a desert climate. In summary, two seasons can be recognized summer that runs from March to October and winter from November to February. During the day, winter temperatures are between 25 ° and 30 ° C in the plain along the coasts, between 15 ° and 25 ° C on the reliefs above 1,800 m. In summer the climatic differences between the north and the south of the country are more remarkable. In the southern region of the Dhofar, summer temperatures fluctuate between 25 ° C and 30 ° C, with a higher humidity and stronger sea currents. In the rest of the area, from May to September, temperatures rise above 40 ° C and the highest level of humidity strengthens the feeling of warmth, especially in Muscat and on the coast.
