The climate of Sanaa (Yemen)
Sanaa (Sana’a) is the capital of Yemen, a country n the south-west of
the Arabian peninsula. Sanaa has a long history, in which, before in
the third century AD a town was founded, there was probably question
of ancient settlements of which up to the present no remnants have
been found. Since the end of the eighties the old town centre of
Sanaa has been part of the Unesco World Heritage. The architecture
inside the historic part is very characteristic with buildings
several story's high and with flat roofs, erected completely with
Arab style elements.
The climate of Sanaa can best be described as a warm steppe climate,
because the amounts of precipitation are higher here than in many
other parts of the country. Sanaa has hot summers in which extreme
heat does not occur very often, and warm dry winters, in which the
temperature at night does drop close to freezing point.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
information for each month of the year:
