What’s the weather like in Dubai in October?
Sitting on the United Arab Emirates’ Persian Gulf coast, Dubai enjoys hot weather all year round. You'll get lots of sun and no rain if you go there in October. It’s not autumn as we know it, but you might prefer the slightly cooler temperatures compared to the summer’s intense heat.
Dubai has a hot desert climate of warm and sunny weather because of its location in the Arabian Desert close to the Tropic of Cancer. With such high temperatures you should be careful that you avoid getting sunstroke, so drink lots of water, avoid the midday sun and use lots of sun cream.
The average high temperature during October is 36ºC, so you won’t need anything more than your beach gear, shorts and t-shirts. Things stay warm in the evenings at this time so light clothes will be enough, but you’ll probably want to get a room with air conditioning. At 31ºC, the sea’s nice and warm, while humidity’s very high and ranges from around 30% to just over 90%. There’s not usually any rain in Dubai during October.
In October there are 12 hours of daylight and ten long hours of glorious sunshine in Dubai daily. Be careful in the sun as UV levels will be very high. Sunset’s just after 6pm at the start of the month.
