Qatar weather overview

Qatar is a small country on the Gulf coast of Saudi Arabia, which is more pleasant to visit in winter than in summer. Winter, spring and autumn days are warm and sunny, with occasional light rainfall, while the summer months are uncomfortably hot and very dry. Although summer temperatures are slightly lower on the coast, high humidity creates an oppressive environment and, in the hottest weather, there is a danger of heatstroke for the unwary.

What to pack for Qatar weather

Light clothes are essential in the summer heat but take slightly warmer attire if you are visiting in the winter.
