Abu Dhabi Climate and Weather

Abu Dhabi has a hot arid climate. Sunny blue skies can be expected throughout the year. The months of June through September are generally hot and humid with maximum temperatures averaging above 35 °C (95 °F). During this time, sandstorms occur sporadically, in some cases reducing visibility to a few meters. The weather is cooler from November to March. Temperatures range from a low of around 13°C (50°F) on a winter's night, to a high of around 42 °C (118°F) on a summer's day.

The cooler months, November to April, are the most pleasant time to visit, when temperatures are around 24°C (75°F) during the day and 13°C (56°F) at night. However, the dry desert air mixed with the sea breeze and cooler evenings make it a traditional retreat from the intense summer heat and year-round humidity of the capital city. Weather wise Abu Dhabi is making efforts to a greener tomorrow. There is massive green drive to grow desert friendly trees for a cleaner, cooler environment.

At present land cultivation and irrigation for agriculture and forestation over the past decade has increased the size of "green" areas in the emirate including parks and roadside plantations. The coastal area contains pockets of wetland and manmade mangrove colonies. Abu Dhabi also has dozens of islands, mostly small and uninhabited, some of which have been selected for encouraging wildlife preservation.
