The sun shines virtually every day in Qatar and rainfall is
almost non-existent, averaging about three inches (80mm) a year,
and this falling only in winter. Summers are sizzling hot by day,
and warm at night, temperatures often hitting the 104°F mark (40°C)
or above. Winters are only slightly cooler by day, but can be very
chilly at night. The best time to visit Qatar is between November
and March, when daytime temperatures are bearable, and there is no
threat of sand storms.
