destination intro image

What’s the weather like in Dubai in August?

Dubai’s location in the United Arab Emirates on the Persian Gulf coast means it gets hot weather all year round. August’s the hottest month with temperatures reaching over 40ºC, and there’s usually no rain, so only go if you love the heat.

Desert Dubai

Dubai’s close to the Tropic of Cancer in the Arabian Desert, which means it’s always hot. Most of Dubai’s sandy desert, and the extreme temperatures mean you should be really careful in the sun. Make sure you drink plenty of water, use lots of high factor sun cream and avoid the midday heat.


Dubai’s average high in August’s a staggering 41ºC so bring very light clothes with you. You won’t need any warm clothes for the evenings as things stay really warm, with temperatures only dropping to 29ºC at night. The sea’s also warm at 33ºC, while humidity’s extremely high. There’s not usually any rain in August, when you’ll get 13 hours of daylight each day with ten hours of sunshine. UV levels will be extreme so be careful in the sun, using plenty of sun cream. Sunset’s just after 7pm at the start of the month.
