The town is subjected to the south-west monsoons. This period (late June to early September) is known as the Khareef season. Visitors from across the Arabian Gulf States, mostly from the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia flock to Salalah to enjoy the monsoon and avoid the harsh heat faced by the rest of the region during the same period. Many residents of Muscat also make the journey to Salalah to enjoy their summer break. In this period, the city's population doubles with the tourist population in the 2007 Khareef season reaching 176,975.[ Salalah, despite lying close to the Arabian desert, enjoys a tropical climate through most of the year.
