Oman is located on the South-eastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the West, Yemen in the South, the Strait of Hormuz in the North and the Arabian Sea in the East. Oman has three distinct topographical features. The first consists of two flat, relatively fertile coastal strips: one in the North stretching from Muscat to the border with the UAE, and the other surrounding the Southern coastal town of Salalah. The second feature includes two mountainous regions: one in the North and the other bordering the Salalah plain in the South. The third feature is a sandy wasteland along the border with Saudi Arabia.

The Climate of Oman can be described as subtropical dry, hot desert climate with low annual rainfall, very high temperatures in summer and a big difference between maximum and minimum temperatures, especially in the inland areas.
Summer (June to September) is very low rainfall. Daily maximum temperatures can reach easily 40°C or more. Winter is cooler with occasional rainfall. Spring and autumn are warm, mostly dry and pleasant, with maximum temperatures between 25°C and 35°C and cooler night Temperatures between 15 and 22°C.
A hot, dust-laden wind, the Shamal, blows in the spring and summer-period, from March till August. sometimes these winds can be very strong, and cause Sandstorms, that can occur throughout the year. Most rain falls during the winter months in sudden, short but heavy cloudbursts and thunderstorms.
