Weather in Kuwait

Kuwait is a low-lying desert country characterised by very hot, dry, long summers and warm winters. In summer, temperatures can reach over 100°F (38°C), but they can drop below 70°F (21°C) in winter. Kuwait receives little rainfall, and the rain that does fall usually occurs during the rainy season from November to March. Humidity can be quite high during the rainy season, particularly in coastal regions.

Dust storms are common when strong winds blow from the interior, and expats with respiratory conditions may struggle in the hot desert environment. Expats living in Kuwait are also at risk from heatstroke and exhaustion, and should drink plenty of water and stay indoors during the hottest times of the day.
