In general, there are two seasons: a colder season from December to February and a hot season from April to October, with a particularly hot period from May to mid-October. March and November are transitional months, with mild temperatures but no extremes. The temperature difference between night and day is small due to the impact of the sea, and humidity is high, especially when winds blow from the interior of Arabia. Summer in Bahrain is extremely hot and sunny, with highs of 34/36 °C (93/97 °F) between May and October and 38/40 °C (100/104 °F) from June to September; lows are around 29/32 °C (84/90 °F) from June to September, and the humidity from the Persian Gulf makes the heat unbearable.

Djibouti is a small African country located midway between the Equator and the Tropic of Cancer in the Horn of Africa. Summer begins in June, with severe heat but decreased humidity, especially in June and July, when the Khamsin, a wind from the desert, frequently blows, which can also lift dust and sand, reducing visibility. Summer lasts through September, with temperatures frequently topping 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), while nighttime temperatures hover around 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). In the afternoon, a sea breeze on the shore can drop the temperature while boosting moisture. September is possibly the worst month since the temperatures stay high, but the environment is quieter and the heat is unpleasant due to the dampness from the sea. The heat continues to be oppressive in October, but temperatures drop slightly and resemble those of May.
