Suivie du temps à Muscat (Oman)


Recommended Posts

Bon, dans 3 semaines je pars m'installer à Muscat, de plus j'y resterais sur place pendant l'été, je constate qu'il n'y a que très peu de suivie des conditions de la péninsule arabique.

Je lance donc le 1er suivie, qui sera agrémenté de photos très prochainement.

Pour commencer voici les normales de Seeb Airport (10 km de Muscat) et proche de la mer (Tmax/Tmin moyennes):

Janvier: 25/17 et 12.7mm

Février: 26/17 et 25.4mm

Mars: 29/21 et 15.2 mm

Avril: 34/24 et 17.8 mm

Mai: 39/29 et 7.6 mm

Juin: 40/31 et 0 mm

Juillet: 38/30 et 0 mm

Août: 36/28 et 0 mm

Septembre: 36/27 et 0 mm

Octobre: 35/24 et 0 mm

Novembre: 30/21 et 7.4 mm

Décembre: 27/18 et 12.7 mm

PS: les moyennes de précipitations pour Juin risque de prendre un bond après la prise en compte du Cyclone de l'été dernier

Le climat de Muscat est très dur en été car très humide ou très chaud dépendant d'un vent de mer ou de terre.

En plus de suivre le temps à Muscat, je suivrais le temps au sommet du Djebel Shams (~2980m d'alt) qui recoit de la neige environ tout les 3 ans et qui en été est un bon indicateur de la température de l'air en altitude.

Je suivrais aussi la ville de Salalah dans le sud du pays qui reçoit la pluie de mousson d'été et aussi je noterais les extrêmes qui peuvent subvenir dans d'autres coin du pays.

Je n'arrive par contre pas à trouver les extrêmes pour Muscat, mais il me semble se situer vers 48C comme Tmax et 13C comme Tmin, le gel peut donc être possible en hiver dans les terres et les 50C sont fréquemment dépassé en été dans l'intérieur.

Si JBB voudrait passer par ici pour éclaircir le sujet?

alors le suivi

Muscat: 22C/15C et soleil, vent faible du Nord pour cette journée

Salalah: 26C/17C et soleil, vent faible du Nord

Djebel Shams: 6C/1C, soleil, vent modéré du Nord

donc des températures légèrements sous les normales pour l'instant, et ceci depuis une semaine, l'anticyclone russe y est pour quelquechose

Bonjour John . Je suis passé à Mascat dèbut juin l'aéroport est un arrêt obligé entre Paris ( l'Europe et l'Inde Srylanka ) les avions suivent au maximum les cotes sauf apèrs Mascate c'est l'océan indien . Biensûr la température est très élevée le tropic du Cancer passe exactement dessus Mascate . L'aéroport y est climatisé default_ohmy.png/emoticons/ohmy@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

Sympa ce suivi et bonne chance là-bas !

On va se battre à coups d'humidex cet été. default_wink.png/emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

Moi aussi j'ai ma petite histoire avec Mascate, j'avais 7 ans et je me rendais avec mes parents à Singapour (via UTA à l'époque dans les années 80) et nous avions fait escale à Mascate au coeur de la nuit en octobre (il faisait chaud default_sick.gif ), je m'en souviens très bien, avant de faire une autre escale à Colombo (Sri Lanka) quelques heures plus tard. Ahhh l'aviation dans les temps anciens... Voilà, modeste expérience avec l'Oman, je l'avoue. default_sleep.png/emoticons/sleep@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

Hello

Je suis pas encore sur place donc les suivies sont peu fréquents.

Sinon j'ai trouvé un résumé (en anglais) du climat à Dubai (il diffère surtout de celui de Muscat en hiver, grâce au massif montagneux entre ces deux villes qui bloque le vent de N)

En tout cas il est relativement intéressant à lire (source: http://www.dubaiairport.com/dubaimet/MET/Climate.aspx):

January

January is the coolest month of the year with the average maximum temperature around 24°C and an average minimum of 14°C. However, records show that temperatures have been reported as high as 32°C and as low as 8°C during the month. It is often cloudy and unsettled as mid-latitude weather disturbances penetrate into the Gulf bringing changeable weather and cool, winter Shamals in their wake. Such Shamals that sweep down the Gulf frequently produce intense convective activity resulting in squally, thundery weather with showers, storms and high seas. On average five or six rain days can be expected during the month, however as many as seventeen rain days have been recorded. Rainfall is often short lived and intense with isolated thunderstorms producing the majority of the recorded rain. Large fluctuations in rainfall occur from year to year with occasional dry years or with as much as 82 mm falling during the month. On clear fine days the weather is pleasant and warm with weak afternoon sea breezes. Sea temperatures are around 21°C.

Top

February

Temperatures increase a degree or so in February with mean maximums typically around 25 °C, however the extreme maximum temperature has reached 36°C with a minimum as low as 7°C. Unsettled wintry weather is more frequent, winter Shamals persist with the associated unsettled weather and strong winds. This makes February one of the windiest months with regular Shamals affecting the Gulf. Shamals bring cool, windy and occasionally showery conditions to the southern Gulf. Ahead of an approaching shamal strong Southeasterly winds often develop bringing hot, dry conditions and occasional sandstorms. The transition from Southeasterly winds ahead of the trough to the Northwesterly Shamal is therefore usually associated with a marked fall in temperature. February is the wettest month of the year, with an average of 25mm of rain, it also holds the record for the most rainfall in a day, 150.2 mm in 1988 at Dubai Airport. The expected number of rain days during the month is 5 but has been as high as 12. The relatively warm, moist air over the Gulf combined with winter weather patterns helps to fuel cloud and storm development. Local convergence and the effect of the mountains in the east of the country also act to generate or enhance rainfall.

Top

March

The period March through to May are the "Spring" months in Dubai when the temperature begins its steady climb towards the summer peaks. Average maximum temperatures rise to around 28°C in March however winter weather patterns continue to affect the area. This combination means that a more abundant supply of energy is available for the development of cloud and storms should the correct combination of meteorological features exist. March is therefore often a very changeable month when Dubai can experience a wide range of weather phenomena. This is why March has the highest expected number of rain days, six on average and up to eighteen in the past as well as the most frequent occurrence of thunderstorms. Average rainfall for the month is 21mm but has been as high as 155 mm. As in February, in between the periods of unsettled weather, winds tend to veer to the Southeast and bring warm, dry desert air to the coast. Temperatures have been recorded in the low 40’s °C later in the month however extreme minimum’s of 11°C have also been recorded.

Top

April

As the sun begins to climb in the sky, April brings some beautiful weather to the Emirates. Maximum temperatures are typically around 33°C, humidity is generally low and although winter systems are still possible they are becoming a lot less frequent. Expected rainfall is down to around 7 mm falling on three days during the month but in exceptional years rainfall has been as high as 60 mm. The coastal, afternoon sea breeze increases in strength as the temperature gradient between the land and the sea develops. The increase in temperature does however mean that the occasional storms that do develop can be violent with heavy rain and squalls. One particularly violent storm in 1981 produced golf ball sized hail stones and in 2003 a storm and squall produced mean winds of 53 kts gusting to 71 kts. As the month progresses, the high level Jet stream starts to move northwards, cutting off southward incursions of unsettled weather and cool Northwesterly winds to the region. The sea in coastal waters continues to warm up with a mean temperature for the month of about 25°C.

Top

May

May often marks the beginning of the summer heat, average maximum temperatures are between 37 and 38°C, but extremes highs of 47°C have been recorded. The Humidity is however at its lowest level for the year and rain and thunderstorms are extremely rare in coastal areas. Hot, dry Southeasterly winds often prevail in May but comfort levels remain reasonable because of the low humidity. Sea temperatures increase to around 28 to 29 °C.

Top

June

During June,low pressure over Southern Iran, which develops in the lee of the mountains, combines with a ridge of high pressure over Saudi Arabia to produce a Northwesterly gradient which can persist over the Gulf for up to six weeks. The phenomena is known locally as the “Forty day Shamal”. From year to year the onset and strength of this effect can vary widely. Hot and generally dry conditions prevail throughout the month with periods of Southeasterly winds replacing the Northwesterly flow when the lee low weakens. When the winds are from the Northwest they bring hot and sometimes dusty conditions from the deserts of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq. Temperatures typically reach a maximum of around 39°C but can be as high as 47°C, low humidity at this time helps to keep stress levels reasonably low. Rainfall is infrequent during June with most coastal stations having a completely dry month. Over the mountains in the East of the Emirate summer storms do develop and can cause intense localised heavy rainstorms and flash flooding in the wadi’s . Dry squalls from these storms do occasionally reach the coast dramatically reducing the visibility for a few hours. Sea temperatures increase into the low 30’s°C.

Top

July

As the summer advances and the monsoon spreads northwards over India the lee low effect over southern Iran begins to weaken and pressure gradients become weak over the area. Land and sea breezes begin to dominate the flow and as the sea is still warming up thermal gradients can be strong with a moderate to fresh Northwesterly sea breeze most afternoons. The humidity can become extremely high at times producing severe stress. The combination of high temperatures and high humidity can make atmospheric conditions extremely unstable and summer thunderstorms are not uncommon. As in June these usually develop over the mountains in the East of the Emirate where the mountains act as elevated heat sources and where convergence often occurs. Sea breezes on the east coast force very humid air up the mountains where it combines late in the afternoon with Gulf coast sea breezes from the Northwest. Inland stations frequently report Towering Cumulus and Cumulonimbus with thunderstorms, squalls and dust or sandstorms. Mid and upper level easterly winds then help to propagate the storms towards the Gulf coast where they can occasionally affect Dubai, Sharjah and the northern Emirates. Mean maximum temperatures in July are typically around 41°C,Inland Stations being the hottest with expected maximums of 44°C and all time extremes around 49°C. Sea temperatures begin to become unpleasantly warm reaching 32-33°C.

Top

August

Conditions during August are similar to those experienced in July in terms of temperature and humidity. During the summer as the sea surface temperature rises, the Gulf increasingly becomes a prolific source of water vapour. Afternoon sea breezes bring this warm, humid air to coastal areas and can produce some of the years most uncomfortable conditions. The risk of summer storms persists and although most frequent over the mountains can occasionally affect coastal areas. Inland desert areas, have a rather different climate, although summer maximum temperatures in the desert are frequently higher than those on the coast the mean humidity is up to 20% lower than coastal areas. This produces rather more comfortable conditions and is the reason that, prior to the prevalence of air conditioning, many local families would spend the summer months away from the coast. Mean sea temperatures are around 33°C but have been recorded as high as 35°C.

September

As temperatures begin to fall after the height of the summer there is a sting in the tail for residents of coastal cities. Sea temperatures reach a peak at the end of August and it is therefore during this time that the potential for warm, humid air to be advected to the coast reaches a maximum. September is far from being the most humid month but it has the highest humidity of the hot summer months. For this reason September is extremely humid and is one of the months with a high occurrence of fog. Night time temperatures begin to drop into the upper 20’s °C and fog will often form in the early morning hours. Maximum temperatures can still occasionally reach extremes of 45°C with extreme minimum’s around 22°C. Sea temperatures begin to fall later in the month with the mean for the month of around 32°C.

Top

October

It is the latter part of the year when the weather is the most pleasant and settled in the UAE. Maximum temperatures in October are around 35°C and although the humidity remains reasonably high comfort indices have fallen from the extreme levels experienced in the summer. As night time temperatures continue to fall, faster than the sea temperature, fog is still a problem in the early morning hours. The weather is usually dry and settled but there have been exceptional years such as 1997 when several weather systems penetrated into the area bringing unsettled wet weather and thunderstorms. The mean sea temperature for the month is 30°C.

Top

November

Temperatures continue to fall sharply during the month with mean maximums between 30°C and 31°C. As the subtropical jet moves southwards and upper level winds over the Gulf strengthen there is the increased potential for low pressure systems to propagate from the North and West into the area. Late in the month it is possible for the first Shamals to affect the Gulf but it is not usually until December that unsettled weather reaches the region. Again November 1997 was an exceptional year with twelve rain days including four thunderstorm days producing 31 mm of rain at Dubai International Airport. In 2004 a severe line squall and thunderstorm brought heavy rain (24 mm) and a hail storm that produced stones of up to 1.5 cm in diameter.

Top

December

By the end of the year winter systems are more frequently affecting the Emirates, the mean monthly rainfall is 15 mm with rain reported on three or four days during the month. Mean maximums have fallen to 26°C with minimum’s typically around 16°C. The humidity is frequently high in the early morning hours with fog still causing a problem, although Dubai and the Northern Emirates tend to be a little less humid than other areas of the country. Occasionally persistent periods of unsettled and wet weather can affect Dubai in December. Rainfall totals have been as high as 130 mm with a 24 hour maximum rainfall of 73 mm. Sea temperatures fall to around 23°C.

Jabal al Shams n'est qu'une station automatisée sur le sommet le plus haut du pays.

Aucune ville ne s'y trouve dans ce coin default_biggrin.png/emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

J'essayerais par contre de faire une excursion jusqu'au sommet (il y a un route en terre/gravier/sable) qui y mène et l'air est franchement plus respirable en été (autour de 30C)

ENFIN, enfin sur place, 6 semaines de retard

Je vais accéder aux données plus fines bientôt.

Mais cela fait 3 jours que je suis ici, il fait chaud, chaque aprés-midi la brise de mer s'installe donc le maximum est atteint vers 13h.

On a entre 35-40C, aujourd'hui 38 C avec une humidité de 17%, soit une chaleur très supportable.

La mer atteint déjà 26C. La vie est agréable ici default_biggrin.png/emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">
