Weather in Muscat

The best time to Muscat is between mid-October and mid-March when the weather is perfect and the evenings cool. This is the time when the city blooms with long ribbons of petunias along the highways, the sky is azure blue, the mountains sharply in focus and the sea calm and inviting. For the other seven months of the year, the heat can be ferocious and the humidity dense enough to taste.
