Dubai, along with Turkey and Bali, is one of the most popular places for wintering. Due to its geographical location, it is always warm and the sun is shining here. However, even in this small warm paradise, there are some drawbacks. In this article, Emirates Estate suggests taking a closer look at how the weather changes in Dubai from January to December.
May to September
Despite the fact that Dubai is located right on the seashore, the climate here is quite hot and dry, especially in spring and summer.

Speaking of which, you have probably heard that many people want to move to Dubai for the winter. This is especially true for large families with several children because I want children not to freeze in our climate, but to enjoy the bright sun and warm evenings. Having decided to move to Dubai, even for a while, families should think about the comfort of movement. To do this, you can buy or rent a car for the duration of your stay in the country. However, the question immediately arises where to keep the car: on the street or paid Parking? Emirates. The estate offers to buy flats with parking in Dubai to avoid unnecessary spending on car parking.
Dubai’s high humidity does not add comfort at all. The heat reaches about + 40°C and above, lasting all summer. It will start to subside only by the end of September when the temperature moderates to around 36°C.
The best month for tourists to come to the Emirates is October. The humidity level ranges from 30% to 90% on average, while the daily maximum barely reaches 35°C.
Rains are rare visitors here, humidity increases in the hot months due to intense evaporation from the sea surface, and at night the temperature and humidity decrease slightly.

- hotels provide big discounts on accommodation
- sales are held in stores
- the summer discount festival in Dubai
- very few guests in hotels, however, the level of service remains the same
- the water in the bay is like fresh milk
As for disadvantages, there is just one:
- many attractions are closed at this time, you can’t walk in the fresh air when it’s sweltering hot outside.
In short, the period from May to September, including the summer months, is not recommended for the very first arrival in the UAE. Of course, you will most likely love the country, what can not be said about the weather.
It is highly not recommended to come to the UAE in the summer months for people who have problems with the cardiovascular system, and it is advisable for any tourist to consult a doctor before buying a tour in such hot months.
