Weather in Lebanon

The Weather and Climate in Lebanon is one of the most beautiful in the World. Lebanon Weather used to be composed of four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Winter  in Lebanon: The winter weather in Lebanon is not that harsh, rainy most of the days, but temperatures are always above zero. The only problem with the winter weather in Lebanon is humidity. This makes the weather feel very cold at times, even if the temperature is not that low. In addition, the homes in Lebanon are not equipped for cold temperatures, they are built with brick/stones which normally releases the heat quickly.

Spring in Lebanon: The spring weather in Lebanon is very beautiful, it is warm and normal both days and nights. However during the last couple of years, the spring temperature has been higher than normal suggesting a trend to what the summer temperatures are.

Summer in Lebanon: While Summer weather is supposed to be good too, the last couple of years has witnesses an excess heat which as described by many Lebanese as Unbearable. “We have never seen such high temperatures in our lives” says one frustrated Lebanese. The temperature during the summer of 2010 has reached highs of 40 degree centigrade which is considered a temperature that you only see in the Gulf of the desert.

Autumn in Lebanon: The Autumn weather used to be as beautiful as Spring, however since 2008, the autumn passes by very quickly as the temperatures during Autumn of 2009 and 2010 remains steady like a summer weather.

In order to check the current temperatures in Lebanon, the Beirut Airport has a special team which monitors the temperatures and gives specific details about the current and upcoming weather conditions in Lebanon.
