The sun shines on almost every day with the months between November and April being the most pleasant. In March and April, and October and November, the temperature is around 30C. During the winter nights the lowest the temperature gets is 15C.
With only 6.5cm, or five days, of rain a year, you won’t often get caught out in a shower. However, when it does rain it can make driving difficult. Storm drains are often full with sand, and drivers have little experience of the more challenging conditions. Sandstorms, common in March and April, bring poor visibility too.
The summer is long and extremely hot rising to almost 50C, and coupled with humidity of between 60-85% it can get very uncomfortable. In September the humidity can rise to 95%. Many expats take the opportunity to return home for long summer breaks, but life doesn’t stop in Dubai – it just moves indoors.
