In Yemen, the climate is tropical desert on the coasts and in the lowlands, while it is mild and moderately rainy on the western plateau. The coast of the Red Sea (called Tiamat) has a desert climate, hot all year round, with highs around 28/30 °C (82/86 °F) in winter and 38/40 °C (100/104 °F) in summer.
Despite the few rains, in this region, unhealthy and malarial areas are found because of rivers that descend from the mountains and feed wetlands. The amount of sunshine, good all year round, decreases a bit in summer because of the cloudiness brought by the southwest monsoon.
The islands of the Red Sea (Danish, Kama ran, Peril) are desert as well, hot in winter and stifling in summer. The coast of the Gulf of Aden has a similar climate, but it's a bit less hot during summer, especially in the central and eastern part, and this happens because of the southwest monsoon, which is felt more, and brings more often cloudy skies.
However, the rains are still very scarce, even though, in July and August, there can be drizzle which does not fall into the statistics (because, in practice, there is no accumulation). As a result, in Aden, in the southern part of the coast, the daytime temperature in June and July is about 37 °C (99 °F), and in August and September, it's about 36 °C (97 °F), while in Al Mikaela, more to the northeast and more exposed to the summer monsoon, it reaches “only” 33/34 °C (91/93 °F) in June and July, with a steady breeze and the sky often cloudy, even though the rains remain sporadic.
The island of Scotia, which is located between the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean, has a tropical desert climate, hot all year round, with daytime temperatures around 28/30 °C (82/86 °F) in winter, which rise to 32/33 °C (90/91 °F) between April and June and drop again to 30 °C (86 °F) in summer because of the monsoon. In Scotia, the rains are very scarce, at least in the lowlands, while the slopes of Mount Hair are greener, and are home to oenophile vegetation, which is able to withstand the drought.
However, from June to September, the island is affected by cloudiness brought by the monsoon, it can receive a few showers, and is often windy. During winter, some brief showers can occur, brought by the northeast Asian monsoon, which can collect some moisture when passing over the sea.
The Arabian Sea in Scotia is warm enough for swimming all year round as well, but in summer, it's not warmer than in winter because of the wind brought by the monsoon, which lowers a bit the temperature; this also applies to the eastern coast of the mainland (see Al Hayden). The western plateau has a mild climate because of the high altitude, but also because it receives moderate rainfall from the summer monsoon.
The landscape is green in the south-west facing slopes, and with the terrace system, cultivation is possible even on steep terrains. In Sana'a, winter is pleasantly warm and sunny during the day, with highs around 21/23 °C (70/73 °F) from November to February, but the temperature at night drops quite a bit, to around 10 °C (50 °F) and sometimes below.
In Sana'a, the sun shines all year round, but the hours of sunshine diminish a bit in July and August. The central-eastern part of Yemen (formerly South Yemen) is occupied by a coastal range, and in the interior, by a plateau which declines from 1,000 to 400 meters (3,300 to 1,300 feet) from west to east, on the border with Oman; this is a desert area, although some rain in summer is possible along the coastal range.
Now and then, Yemen can be reached by tropical cyclones, which bring strong winds and heavy rainfall (which can cause flash floods in desert areas, which are not able to absorb water). The most affected areas are the island of Scotia, directly exposed in the open sea, and the central-eastern part of the coast, towards the border with Oman, which is hit more easily.
On the other hand, once cyclones enter the Gulf of Aden, they tend to weaken, so the western part of the country is more protected. Along the coasts and at low altitudes, it's a warm and sunny period, while in the desert, it's pleasant during the day, while it may become a bit cold at night, but at least, you avoid the blistering heat of the long summer months.
In Sana'a and at high altitudes, winter is equally sunny, but it's mild during the day and a bit cold at night. Owing to the mild temperatures, you can visit Sana'a all year round, but in summer, especially in July and August, it is often cloudy, in addition, some showers, at times heavy, can occur.
In winter : for the plateau and Sana'a, pack spring/autumn clothes (light for the day), a sun hat, a sweater and a jacket for the evening. For the mountain peaks, bring warm clothes, such as a down jacket, a sweater, gloves, and a hat.
