Weather in Wadi Rum

The weather in Wadi Rum changes during different seasons, but common for all is a lot of sunny hours and very little rain. The best seasons to visit Wadi Rum would be during spring (from March-May) or in the autumn (from September-November). The temperature drops significantly during nighttime, so make sure to bring clothes for all hours of the day. You can check the weather forecast here.



December | January | February

Expect temperatures up to 16 degrees during the day, and down to freezing degrees at night. So make sure to bring a warm and wind-proof jacket for the tours, and some warm clothes for the night. During the winter, we have a few rain showers, but they’re usually quick, and shouldn’t affect your trip, or stay, at all. Check the weather forecast, and bring a rain jacket, if you want to be sure. It gets fairly chilly once the sun sets.


March | April | May

Expect warm days, and cold nights, with day temperatures between 20-35 degrees, and night temperatures dropping to 5-20 degrees. White and linen clothes are recommended during the day, but make sure to bring a warmer layer for the evenings and nighttime.

Desert Dune


June | July | August

We don't recommend visiting at this time of the year if you’re not used to the heat. It does take some time to get used to a scorching sun and average temperatures of around 34 degrees. At night the temperature can drop to around 17 degrees. Make sure to bring your lightest and most breathable clothes if you’re visiting during this season.


September | October | November

This season is highly recommended, since the day temperatures are averaging between 20-32 degrees, and the night time offers temperatures ranging between 8-16 degrees. During this season, bright-coloured and breathable clothes are recommended. Warmer layers might be a good idea for colder nights.
