26.01.2016 – Pearls & Caviar, Abu Dhabi
“I can’t visit you, it’s always so hot over there – I cannot handle it”
People often associate the desert with unbearable heat throughout the year.
Well, first of all, once you are in ABU DHABI or DUBAI a) you do not see any desert (if you do not drive at least one hour out of the city) and b) it does not seem at all that the desert is nearby due to beautiful greenery, waves in the ocean and most different skyscrapers.
Secondly, yes, we are blessed with mainly sunny weather but still temperatures rise and fall..our temperatures may sound “high” in comparison to Europe but the heat/humidity is different..yes, it can get chilly due to the cool desert winds and yes, we do have some rainy days in between.
Jan – 15˚C – 23˚C (windy evenings)
Feb – 15˚C – 25˚C (windy evenings, rain possibility)
Mar – 18˚C – 27˚C (windy evenings, high rain possibility)
Apr – 20˚C – 30˚C (a-m-a-z-i-n-g)
May – 23˚C – 35˚C (great but humidity increases)
Jun – 26˚C – 40˚C (in the past two years May & June were amazing in terms of weather)
Jul – 28˚C – 42˚C (highway to hell..)
Aug – 30˚C – 46˚C (stuck in hell..only way out: take a plane!)
Sep – 26˚C – 40˚C (humidity is still quite high!)
Oct – 23˚C – 36˚C (great and humidity fades out)
Nov – 20˚C – 32˚C (a-m-a-z-i-n-g)
Dec – 16˚C – 26˚C (great but it’s getting chilly)
If you are weather sensitive I would recommend you to come and explore this beautiful country from March till June + Mid October till December.
March 2016 was pretty bad: Hey Global warming, are you proud of this?
“What about the sea? How’s the temperature?”
Ranges between 22˚C and 35˚C
(yes, I would not go to the sea in July, August & September – “too much hot”)
