Q:

Which countries are hot all year round?

A:

Many countries are hot throughout the year due to their location on or near the Earth's equator, which is where the sun's rays are the strongest. Some of these countries include Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Somalia, Indonesia, Ecuador, Colombia and Libya.

Temperatures in Saudi Arabia average 113 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer, 84 degrees in the spring and around 60 degrees during the winter. Iraq has an average high temperature of about 85 degrees Fahrenheit and an average low of 61 degrees Fahrenheit, but during the hottest summer months, temperatures can reach above 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Kuwait has a semi-desert climate, and average temperatures during the summer range from 107 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit. Winter temperatures in Kuwait drop to around 60 degrees Fahrenheit. In Oman, summer temperatures average around 95 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter temperatures average around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Libya is not part of the Middle East, but it is perhaps the hottest country in the world. It is about 95 percent desert, and temperatures have been recorded as high as 136 degrees Fahrenheit. The average temperature during the warm season in Libya is 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average temperature during the cold season is 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, humidity ranges from a comfortable 31 percent to a startling 100 percent throughout the course of the year.
