We are almost in the summer season in Dubai. The temperature is rising higher and higher day by day. If you are not in Dubai or haven’t travelled to any of the middle-east countries then this article will help you to understand the weather in Dubai and in the middle-east.
What’s the weather like in Dubai? People wishing to travel to this beautiful and highly developed state in the United Arab Emirates, but who’ve never been to anywhere in the Middle East before, have this question.
One of the factors that seem to dictate the trend in Dubai tourism (i.e., the number of tourists to Dubai at any given period of the year) is the weather. Throughout the year, the weather in Dubai is characterized by sunny days. This is understandable considering that Dubai has an excessively dry subtropical climate.
Summer in Dubai, which is during the months of July to September, can be very humid and hot. The temperature during this time is around 45 C (113 F), although it can peak to 48 C (118.4 F), especially in the inner areas of the city. The humidity level, on the other hand, can get to as high as 90 percent. Shamal (Arabic for wind) blows from mid-May to mid-July, and causes large sandstorms.
A marked decrease in temperatures is experienced beginning October. For the entirety of this month, temperatures range from a low of 26 C (78.8 F) to a high of 36 C (96.8 F). The weather in Dubai begins to be comfortable for tourists in the months of November and December. During this period, temperatures range from 21 C (69.8 F) to 30 C (86 F). Some rainfall likewise occur during these two months.
Winter sets in at the start of the year and ends around the end of March. It is during this time of the year when Dubai experiences an increase in the number of tourists because of the ideal weather. Average minimum temperature during this time is 14 C (57.2 F), while average maximum temperature is 29 C (84.2 F).
Beginning April up to late June, the weather in Dubai turns warmer. Temperature during this period is anywhere between 34 C (94.2 F) and 41 C (105.8 F). Humidity level at this time ranges between 50 and 56 percent. Also during these months, the days remain sunny for 10 hours or so.
Rain is scanty for the entire year, with the highest precipitation taking place during the winter months of January to March. The average rainfall in Dubai for the entire year is only about 13 centimeters (just a little over 5 inches).
Here are the temperature averages in Dubai, on a per-month basis:
• January and February – 20 C (68 F)
