    Temperature

During this time of year, the resort enjoys similar weather to Nabq Bay, with temperatures rising up to a sizzling 34°C in the afternoons. Temperatures drop down to around a still warm 25°C after the sun sets. Both high and low temperatures are one degree lower than they were in August, but they still are very high by all accounts.

The overall average temperature in September is 30°C, the same as in June and only one degree less than the annual maximum in July and August.

    Sunshine Hours

    Another one-digit decrease is observed in the amount of sunshine per day. The average day in September receives 12 beautiful hours of sunshine, which makes this the fifth sunniest month in the year after the previous four months. 12 sunshine hours per day is still a lot, thougho no complaints there!
