Climate

Bahrain features an arid climate. Bahrain has two seasons: an extremely hot summer and a relatively mild winter. During the summer months, from April to October, afternoon temperatures average 40°C (104°F) and can reach 48°C (118,4°F) during June and July. The combination of intense heat and high humidity makes this season uncomfortable.
Temperatures moderate in the winter months, from November to March, when the range is between 10° and 20°C (50 and 68°F). However, humidity often rises above 90% in the winter. From December to March, prevailing winds from the southeast, known as the shamal, bring damp air over the islands. 

Administrative division

Bahrain is split into five governorates.
