Fujairah experiences a distinct rainfall pattern compared to its neighbouring emirates. The UAE, as a whole, receives limited rainfall due to its predominantly arid climate. However, Fujairah stands out as an exception.

Owing to its unique geography and proximity to the Indian Ocean, the emirate benefits from the moisture-laden air masses traversing the ocean, resulting in more frequent and substantial rainfall than the rest of the country.

The Hajar Mountains, which run along the eastern coastline of the UAE, play a significant role in Fujairah’s increased precipitation. These mountains act as a barrier, causing the moist air from the Indian Ocean to rise, cool, and condense into rain clouds.

As a result, Fujairah enjoys a relatively higher annual rainfall, averaging between 100 and 150 millimetres, compared to other emirates like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which receive an average of around 75 millimetres per year. This increased rainfall contributes to the verdant oases and wadis that dot the landscape, starkly contrasting the arid deserts in the rest of the country.

Fujairah’s rainfall remains sporadic despite its higher precipitation levels, mainly between December and March. During these months, the emirate experiences the occasional heavy downpour. In contrast, the summer months from June to September are marked by hot, dry conditions, with little or no rainfall.

As shown in the table above, Fujairah experiences a significant amount of sunshine year-round, with the highest average hours of sun occurring between May and August. May and June receive the most sunlight, averaging 11.8 hours per day. The high sun exposure during these months contributes to the hot and dry summer conditions typical of the region.

In contrast, the winter months from December to February experience fewer hours of sun, with December receiving the lowest average of 8.9 hours per day. However, it is worth noting that even during the winter months, Fujairah still enjoys considerable sunlight compared to many other parts of the world.

During the summer months, Fujairah’s sea temperature peaks. In July, the water temperature climbs to a balmy 33 °C (91 °F), while June, August, and September maintain an inviting 32 °C (90 °F). T

As the seasons shift and cooler temperatures arrive, Fujairah’s sea temperatures begin to decline, albeit remaining pleasantly warm. In the autumn months of October and November, water temperatures hover around 30 °C (86 °F) and 28 °C (82 °F), respectively. These months offer a more temperate environment for visitors who prefer milder conditions while enjoying the emirates’ beaches.

During the winter months, Fujairah’s sea temperatures reach their lowest point but remain relatively mild compared to many other destinations. January and February see the coolest water temperatures at 24 °C (75 °F) and 23 °C (73 °F), respectively, while December sits slightly higher at 25 °C (77 °F). Even during these cooler months, the sea remains inviting for swimming and other water-based activities.

Adverse Weather

Like any other region, Fujairah has its share of adverse weather conditions. These conditions, though infrequent, can impact travel plans, outdoor activities, and daily life. 

One notable adverse weather condition that Fujairah faces is the occasional heavy rainfall, especially during the winter months from December to March. The emirate receives more rainfall than other parts of the UAE, and intense downpours can lead to flash flooding, particularly in low-lying areas and wadis. 

Fujairah’s coastal location also makes it susceptible to tropical cyclones that form in the Arabian Sea. Though these cyclones rarely make landfall in the UAE, they can bring heavy rainfall, strong winds, and rough seas to the region. Tourists and residents are advised to monitor weather updates and heed local authorities’ advice during tropical cyclone events.

Dust storms, while less common in Fujairah than in other parts of the UAE, can still occur. These storms can reduce visibility, impact air quality, and make outdoor activities uncomfortable. When a dust storm occurs, it is best to stay indoors, keep windows and doors closed, and avoid driving if possible.
