Statistical weather charts of Yemen with winds, rainfall, temperature and clouds.
the world' s climate: Yemen and
Yemen's weather can be described as a subtropically arid, warm deserts with low precipitation, very high summers and a large temperature differential between high and low altitudes, especially upcountry. There is very little precipitation in the summers (June to September). The most rains fall in the winters in suddenly, briefly, but violently downpours and storms.
We recommend that you wear rainwear in cold weather. Koeppen Geiger Classification: Yemen's temperate climates can be classed as DHW climates; a warm, arid deserts climates with an mean yearly temperature of over 18°C.
Temperatures, rainfall, when to go, what to grab
Yemen's climatic conditions are coastal and lowland deserts, while on the west plain it becomes gentle and moderate raining. The south-west moon rains the west highland in June to September, while it causes common clouds in the remainder of the land, but virtually no snow.
Tihamah (Red Seas ) has a year round warm deserts with maximum temperatures around 28/30 C (82/86 F) in winters and 38/40 C (100/104 F) in summers. Moisture from the ocean makes the sun sweat in it. In spite of the few rainfalls, there are areas in this area that are not healthy and contaminated with malaria, as the streams flow down from the hills and nourish marshlands.
The year-round good solar radiation declines slightly in summers due to the clouds caused by the south-west moon. The Red Sea is hot enough to swim all year round, and in summers it gets very hot, as you can see in the following chart.
The Red Sea islets ( (Hanish, Kamaran, Perim) are also deserts, warm in winters and suffocating in summers. Aden Gulf has a similar weather, but in summers it is a little less warm, especially in the middle and east, because of the south-west moon, which is more frequent and clouds the sky, as you can see in the sunny Al Mukalla.
However, the rainfall is still very rare, even though there may be drizzly in July and August, which does not appear in the statistic (because there is no cumulation in practice). In Aden, in the south of the coastline, the day temperatures in June and July are around 37 degrees Celsius (99 degrees F), in August and September around 36 degrees Celsius (97 degrees F), while in Al Mukalla, further north-eastern and more strongly subjected to the summersonsun, they reach "only" 33/34 degrees Celsius (91/93 degrees F) in June and July, with a constant wind and often overcast skies, although the rainfall remains intermittent.
The Gulf of Aden's ocean is similar to that of the Red Seas, although it becomes less warm in summers due to the winds and the clouds associated with the monsoons. Seaside (°F)79798981828688868684868684848179 The west plateaus have a gentle climatic conditions because of the high elevation, but also because it rains moderately during the summermonso.
the highest peak in Yemen with its 3,666 meters, here however 240 mm of rains per year, collected from July to September, with a peak in August of 95 mm: Rainfall is therefore characteristic for a semi-desert environment. In Sana'a the daytime winters are comfortably hot and sunshiny, with peak temperatures around 21/23 C (70/73 F) from November to February, but at nights the temperatures drop quite sharply, to about 10 C (50 F) and sometimes below.
It' hot in summer: the daytime mean is about 24°C (75°F); sometimes there can be some rain or thunder. Orthopaedic surgeon Max (°F)727375757575798282817979737270 In Sana'a the whole year round the star is shining, but in July and August the sunny times decrease a while. Yemen's central-eastern part (formerly southern Yemen) is covered by a strip of coast and inside by a plain that drops from 1,000 to 400 meters from western to eastern, on the Oman frontier; this is a deserts area, although some rainfall is possible along the coast in summers.
To the far northern part, along the Saudi Arabian frontier, is also the south tip of Rub'al Khali, the sand dessert of the south. It is very warm in this area, with altitudes above 40°C (104°F), but even here a little cloudy can occur in conjunction with the sommermon.
between the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean, has a typically dry tropic climate: it is warm all year round, with day- and night temperature around 28/30 C (82/86 F) in winters, which rises to 32/33 C (90/91 F) between April and June and falls back to 30 C (86 F) in summers due to the monsoons.
In Socotra, the rainfall is very rare, at least in the plains, while the hillsides of Mount Hajhir are more green and shelter xerophilic plants that can resist the dry. From June to September, however, the clouds associated with the seasonal monsoons affect the area. It can get a few chills and is often draughty.
Socotra can have brief downpours in winters, linked to the North-East Asia tsunami, which can absorb some humidity as it crosses the ocean. In Socotra, the skies are often clouded from mid-June to mid-September, while the remaining part of the year is sunny. The Arabian Ocean in Socotra is hot enough to swim all year round, but in summers it is just as hot as in winters, as the winds of the monsoons lower the temperatures slightly; this also holds true for the east shore of the continent (see Al Ghaydan).
which brings with it high wind and rainfall (in deserts that cannot take up rain, which can lead to torrential floods), as was the case in early November 2015 with the Chapala and in the following few day with the Megh clou. In October 2008 with the ARB 02 and in June 1996 with the Deep Depressionyclone.
Areas most affected are the open seas of the Isle of Socotra and the more vulnerable central-eastern part of the coastline towards the Oman-Port. Instead, the west of the land is better sheltered, because as soon as hurricanes penetrate the Gulf of Aden, they have a tendency to weaken: on the coastline and in lower elevations it is a hot and sunshine time; in the deserts it is comfortable during the days, while at nights it can get a little chilly, but at least one avoids the scorching warmth of the long summers.
The weather is usually good in December, but there are still possible hurricanes, especially in the first half of the months. Because of the warm weather, Sana'a can be seen all year round, but in summers, especially in July and August, it is often overcast and there can be some, sometimes heavyshower.
It can also get a few downpours between March and May, but they only want to go to the plateaus, in this area the best periods are March-April and October-November to prevent the coldness of winters as well as the rain in summers. In Yemen it is always hot enough for a swim, both in Socotra and on the coast of the continent.
