What's the weather like in Dubai in January?
Dubai enjoys warm weather all year round thanks to its location on the Persian Gulf Coast. You'll get lots of sun if you're going there in January, and it’ll be more comfortable than in summer, when temperatures are scorching.
Dubai’s in the Arabian Desert close to the Tropic of Cancer, which means it has hot weather and hardly any rain. The area’s mostly sandy desert, with January less humid compared to summer. You'll like this time of year if you prefer to be more active, with cooler temperatures and pleasant evenings.
The typical high temperature in Dubai during January is 24ºC, so it’s great for some winter sun. You'll want to bring some warmer clothes for the evenings as things do get quite cool, while sea temperatures are around 21ºC. Humidity’s low, while average rainfall’s 11mm over two days with rain. You can expect 11 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day, while UV levels will be high so pack some sun cream. Sunset’s at 5.40pm at the start of the month and gradually gets earlier.
