Weather Overview

Dubai has a sub-tropical, arid climate, with clear skies, sunshine, and high temperatures throughout the year. Rainfall is rare and erratic. Any showers are usually in the winter months (December to March).

Average maximum temperatures range from 24°C in January to 41°C in July. The best time to visit Dubai is between December and March when the temperature is pleasant in the daytime and cool in the evening. Not surprisingly, this coincides with the peak tourist season and the most expensive hotel rates.

July and August in Dubai are uncomfortably hot with a furnace-like average high of 41°C. Most visitors will find themselves camped up in their hotel, shopping mall or other air-conditioned location. Many residents take a long break and leave the city. If you don’t plan on spending much time outdoors this is the best time of year to get great hotel deals.

    I have been to Dubai on my holidays for the past 12 years and it never disappoints me. The weather is always hot and the people are the most friendly people you would ever meet.

  2. sooresh ramdas says

    We plan to go on a desert safari and bbq dinner on our visit to Dubai Jan 7-12. How low does the temp go during night in the desert?

    • Editor says

      In January the average low temperature in Dubai at night will be about 14 degrees Celsius (or 58 degrees Fahrenheit).

  3. zamina says

    Have been to Dubai several times in the summer. I had great fun with my kids though it is very hot. Next year it will be the first time that we will be there in January. I hope it will be as much fun as before. I just pray that it wont be raining during my stay.

  4. ian says

    I’m going in January 2015 and I can’t wait. I’m expecting a nice country with lots to do and no lying in bed.

    • Editor says

      I hope you have a great time. There’s lot to see and do.

  5. mike says

    Over summer I would never encourage any human to visit Dubai. It’s the hottest place I have ever been, but the rest of the time it’s quite nice.

  6. Raj says

    I visited Dubai in December 2010 along with my family. We just love the city on account of its good cultures, pleasant environment, discipline, excellent shopping malls, good foods available in the various foodcourts, etc. Bravo DUBAI! Keep it up for others to follow suit!

  7. mo says

    Dubai is a very nice place. I stayed in July & August. Very hot though. Very safe there and a lovely place to visit.

  8. Steph says

    I visited dubai last february and the weather was mid 20s, very pleasant! I am going back next week where the temperature will be averaging 38, which will be lovely!! I would definitely recommend Dubai, such a wide range, something for everyone! Beaches, Culture, Shopping!

  9. Charlotte says

    The weather here from June to September is intolerable. The place is a hotbox and I don’t know why anyone would want to come here. There are so many other gorgeous cities to visit.

  10. u.k girl says

    Dubai locals are very friendly and helpful. Its the safest place to live in this world. Beautiful good, kind hearted people. Blessed place.

  11. Carolina says

    Dubai is the greatest place for sun lovers. I really enjoyed staying there.

  12. cry says

    I went there last April. The weather was tolerable, the place is nice and the people are a cultured lot. Disciplined and friendly too.

  13. lola says

    Dubai is nice, to me, i went in june and july, out in the desert at night its freezing but during the day its really hot its humid as well but i liked it….. GO DUBAI

  14. steve says

    If you can’t stand it really hot, don’t go in the summer. It is so hot (and humid) the hotels actually cool the pools down.

  15. Jim Arkwright says

    Don’t bother packing any jackets. You won’t need them and are only wasting space in your suitcase.

  16. Ross Pilling says

    One additional benefit of the climate is that you don’t get any flies and mosquitos in Dubai, so outdoor dining is quite pleasant in the evening.

  17. sophie says

    In the summer (Jun – Sep) it really is too hot. Many residents who can, go elsewhere for the summer.

  18. Editor says

    Over the next couple of years the government are building around 1,500 air-conditioned bus shelters that will enable passengers to escape Dubai’s intense heat. They hope this will encourage the use of public transport and reduce traffic congestion.

  19. Gaza says

    During the winter you get the occasional sandstorm in Dubai.
