United Arab Emirates: Climate & Weather

It is hot most of the year, and the small size of the country means that climate changes are virtually non-existent, except for a slight temperature difference between the cities, all clustered on the coast, and the interior Land, which is desert. The most pleasant season, which can be described as winter, is between October and April, and the weather is fairly mild, which can be as low as 10 ° C on the coolest mornings, but reach 28 ° C in the afternoon. It can even rain sometimes during this season ... sporadically enough because the country knows only about 10 days of rain over a full year! On the other hand, from June to September, the summer season is torrid, with temperatures between 30 and 40 ° C, and sometimes exceeding 50 ° C. To this is added an important humidity difficult to support, greatly limiting the activities outside.
