Daily maximum temperatures

The highest daytime temperatures in Qatar are reached in July with an average of 42.8 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is January, with an average of just 22.9 °C. In the United Kingdom, July is the warmest month, with 19.0 °C. There, it is coolest in January with an average of 7.2 °C.

Night time lows

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In Qatar, temperatures drop as low as 15.1 °C in January. The warmest nights are in July at 32.4 °C. In the United Kingdom, it is coolest at night in February at 2.7 °C and warmest in July at 12.1 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 7.7 to 11.3 °C in Qatar and 4.1 to 7.2 °C in the United Kingdom.

Water temperatures

Humidity

The humidity of the air depends to a large extent on the air temperature. The warmer the air, the more water it can absorb. At a temperature of 25°C it is 23 grams per cubic meter, at 30 degrees it is already 26 grams. Therefore, the air humidity is given as a relative value to the temperature-dependent maximum amount. It becomes unpleasant when high humidity is combined with high temperatures.

Humidex

Humidex is an approximate, sensed temperature calculated on the basis of air temperature, dew point and humidity. It was developed in 1965 by the Canadian meteorologists J. M. Masterton and F. A. Richardson. Since the wind speed is ignored here, it is not very meaningful in areas below approx. 15°C. Above that, it is more reliable, since at higher temperatures humidity plays a greater role than wind.

Rain days per month

By definition, a rain day is a day on which at least 0.1 liters of precipitation per m² fall. This corresponds to a 1 square meter puddle in which the water stands 0.1 mm high — insofar as the water does not seep away or evaporate. So it does not have to rain all day long. November brings the most rainy days (2.3) in Qatar. With an average of only zero days, June is the friendliest. In the United Kingdom, it rains most often in December with 15.9 days.

Precipitation amount per day

Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in Qatar occurs in December, when about 0.7 liters per square meter fall per day. In the United Kingdom, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 1.6 liters per day in April to 3.3 in November. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 15.9 rainy days in the United Kingdom in November, each of them accounts for about 6.1 liters.

Sunshine hours per day

With 3,395 hours of sunshine per year, Qatar is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (10.7 per day) are in June. The United Kingdom falls into second place with only 1,387 hours. There the sun is visible in December for only 1.5 hours per day, so not hidden behind clouds.

Hours of daylight

The length of a day varies throughout the year and depends on the distance from the equator. In December, the day in Qatar is only 10.6 hours long. In June, on the other hand, it is 13.7 hours. In the United Kingdom, it is 7.4 hours in December and 17.4 in June.
