The second largest and most densely populated of the United Arab Emirates is Dubai.

However, it is possible for temperatures to fall below 12°C on rare occasions, compared to March, which has an average temperature of around 23°C.

If you want to visit Dubai when it's slightly cooler, January may be a better option when temperatures average out at 19°C to 20°C.

Average Sunshine Hours

During February the amount of sunshine hours stay the same as December and January at eight hours in total. However, the length of day is starting to gradually increase.

On average 40mm of rainfall is likely to fall spread over just four days, compared to January when 10mm of rainfall is predicted, spread over just six days. The most likely form of precipitation at this time of year is moderate rain; it's most likely to fall around February 27th.

On February 26th 2012, strong sandstorms raged across the UAE, closing off roads in Dubai and even causing flight delays in some UAE airports. Sandstorms occasionally occur in Dubai as it is located in the middle of the desert. They are usually caused by strong north-westerly winds blowing over from Saudi Arabia which pick up sand along the way, usually they are not harmful but can last up to several days and reduce visibility.

Average Sea Temperature

If you fancy going for a dip the sea temperature in February is pleasantly warm at 21°C, however this is significantly colder compared to August where sea temperatures can exceed 33°C!

February is a superb time of year to visit Dubai, as even though the temperatures are getting warmer, it's a lot more comfortable than visiting in the peak of the summer where temperatures can reach the mid 40's.
