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 (November to April).

Average maximum temperatures range from 23°C in January to 41°C in August.

The best time to visit Dubai is between November and April 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 above 40°C. Most visitors will find themselves camped up in their hotel, shopping mall or other air-conditioned location.

In summer 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.

The average sea temperature in Dubai is 27°C (81ºF).

Comments and Additional Information

  1. Wonder what Month there most Sandstorms hit Dubai. Is it more risk in may or August.

  2. I love Dubai. The most blessed place in the world because of safest, discipline, calm, green and clean city. They heaven in the world. You must visit this place to write wonderful tour in your good book.


  3. We are going to Dubai in August and believe it is extremely hot. We often spend July and August in Kalkan (Southern Turkey) where temperatures sometimes hit mid-40’s. Does Dubai get much hotter than this? We have visited Dubai previously in late May and weather was lovely.

    • I would avoid it altogether. It’s not pleasant and most people just complain.

    • Yes, being a citizen of Dubai I have experienced the temperature rising 40 degrees. But it does not happen all the time. Just drink water and keep yourselves hydrated!

    • Yes. It may go beyond 40 degrees and temperatures may reach sometimes 45 to 48 Degrees also. Going out without proper cover over ones head may expose to sunstroke and extreme fatigue. Water and other seasonal fruit juices may help one to keep hydrated to avoid dehydration

  4. I’m going to dubai with my family in August for the first time. Many people say it is very hot. What do i need to keep me hydrated and prevent from falling sick?

    • Just drink a lot a water.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

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

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

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

    • Yes, right friendly, hospitable, green and clean. A very safe place. People from all over the world live in peace with each other. Polite police force. Very meticulous and hornest in their administration. GOD bless the ruler.

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

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

  17. 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

    • Im going camping June 3rd and I’m worried it will be too hot to camp. Does it get nice and cool in the evenings in the desert?

  18. 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.

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

  20. 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.

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

  22. 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.

  23. During the winter you get the occasional sandstorm in Dubai.
