Let’s face it: Summers in Oman are tedious – and that has always been the case. However, latest statistics are now showing that it’s only getting hotter here in the Sultanate.
As per the revealings of the National Centre for Statistics and Information (NCSI), the nation’s average annual maximum temperature rose 2.6 degrees in the last five years alone.
Furthermore, the data from NCSI’s 46th issue of the 2018 Statistical Yearbook showed Oman’s average annual maximum temperature in 2017 to stand at a balmy 33.6 compared to 31.0 in 2012.
Additionally, the mean minimum temperature last year was 23.1 compared to 21.8 five years ago, and we’re also receiving lesser rainfall – 95.3mm in 2016 compared to 74.3mm in 2017.
