The climate of Dammam (Saudi Arabia)
Dammam is a port on the Persian Gulf in the eastern part of Saudi Arabia in the East province, also known as Ash Sharqiyah. Dammam is located in the vicinity of the city of Al Hofuf. Dammam is the second largest port of the country and the largest on the Persian Gulf. In the East province the largest oil field in the world can be found making Dammam one of the largest oil transshipment ports in the world. Over the past few years the city has been trying to attract more tourists. Large shopping malls were built and several popular beaches were developed. Almost all large hotel chains have opened branches here as well as hospitality chains. Despite its location on the Persian Gulf Dammam has a desert climate with hot summers and mild winters. The Persian Gulf only has little influence on the climate here. Summers are extremely hot, temperatures just below 50 degrees Celsius are not uncommon. The average annual temperature is above 30 degrees Celsius. Winters are much more pleasant. In some cases temperatures will drop below 10 degrees Celsius during the night. Precipitation figures are low all year round. Dammam gets less than 70 millimeters of annual precipitation. During the winter heavy thunderstorms are not uncommon. Sandstorms may occur all year round.
