For sure, One thing that we will search in a country we will be staying at is its Temperature… and what do you expect here in the Middle East? 😅😅😅
There are only 2 Seasons here in UAE, Summer and Winter.
The scorching sun will melt you! Literally!
All establishments here are fully equipped with AC (Air Conditioners). It is a MUST! Your workplace, trains, buses, even bus stop cubicles has it. Why? During summer season, normal temperature outside is 38℃ – 42℃, it gets worse sometimes and hitting 50℃ plus, getting out from your building can be like, you are roasting yourself, imagine a burning charcoal in front of you, water coming out from your shower will really hurt you. Yes, but it is real. Summer here usually starts from March to October. Expats like me are already used to this kind of weather.
Pity for those who work outside as construction laborers, that’s why during this season, when the temperature hit its worst and can’t be bearable for human, the government here will not allow construction companies to work in the middle of the day but to adjust it until evening to avoid accident and health risk issues.
But hey, don’t be upset that much because summer time is also BEACH TIME!
Beach goers and lovers can still enjoy the sand during this season, some chose to be under the sun early in the morning or late in the afternoon like 6 pm, during this period the sun can’t do damage on your skin. Here is Dubai, beaches are now one of the destination you can enjoy and relax, which also offer beach activities/sports and running tracks.
and when it RAINS??? When this happens, it’s a sign that it is changing its Season. Means, it is just in between the summer and winter season exchange.
Let that “BOOTS” out from that closet!
“During the winter season it has an average daytime temperature of 25 °C (77 °F). Nighttime temperatures near the coastline range between 12 °C (54 °F)-15 °C (59 °F), while in the desert they are 5 °C (41 °F) with the nights being relatively cool throughout the year.” Climate of Dubai
Oh Yes baby, we have Winter season here in UAE, and you can and will enjoy this time of the year, this season usually starts from November to February. And it’s time for you to change your outfit, put back those summer dress inside your closet, bring out those sweaters and boots and take advantage of this short period of time climate. Snow here is real, but once it does, you need to hurry because it won’t last for long. It is during this period that you can enjoy more of having city tours, desert drive adventures, camping, dhow cruise and other tour activities.

So choose which season would you like to be here in UAE. Cheers!
