Kuwait is a low-lying desert country characterised by hot, dry, long summers and warm winters. In summer, average temperatures easily reach over 100°F (38°C), and can drop below 70°F (21°C) in winter. At night, minimum winter temperatures occasionally drop below 50°F (10°C).

Kuwait receives little rainfall, and the rain that does fall usually occurs during the rainy season from December to February. 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. There are also health risks of heatstroke and exhaustion, so expats living in Kuwait should drink plenty of water and stay indoors during the hottest times of the day.
