    Dubai Weather for March 2019

    What's the Weather like in Dubai in March

    The second largest, and most densely populated of the United Arab Emirates is Dubai. It's also one of the most multicultural areas, with many Indian, Pakistani, Filipino, American and European residents. Dubai enjoys a hot desert climate and provides white sandy beaches coupled with modern and unique sightseeing opportunities.


    March brings temperatures ranging from 17°C-28°C in Dubai, compared to April, which has an average temperature of around 26°C. With only a half inch of rain expected during the entire month, UV is high so sunscreen is advisable and the humidity increases slightly from previous months, but shouldn't cause too much, if any, discomfort.

    As expected Dubai experiences a dry hot desert climate. The month of March is characterized by rising daily high temperatures with daily high temperatures increasing from 26°C to 30°C, compared to the summer season this is considerable cooler and more comfortable as in August temperatures can exceed 41°C. However, on some occasions in March temperatures can even exceed a sweltering 36°C.

    Average Sunshine Hours

    During March, as spring is under way the sunshine hours are starting to increase to nine hours, up an hour from the months of January and February. Over the course of March, the length of day is gradually increasing. The longest day falls on March 31st with 12:24 hours of daylight, whilst the shortest day of the month is March 1st with 11:40 hours of daylight.


    During March the median cloud cover ranges from a mostly clear 19% to 25%. Even though cloud cover over the course of the year is very low, the trend in March is for the sky to be clearing with the median cloud cover decreasing by 6% from the start to the end of the month.


    Precipitation at this time of year is very low, with the average probability that some form of precipitation will be observed in a given day at just 15%, with very little variation over the course of the month. On average only 10mm of rainfall is expected throughout the month, spread across just six days.

    February is usually the month that experiences the most rainfall, however this is still low at 40mm, spread over just four days. If it does in fact rain, the most common forms of precipitation are moderate rain, thunderstorms and light rain.


    During March the relative humidity ranges from a comfortable 33% to a very humid 92%, rarely dropping below a very dry 14%. The air is usually driest around March 31st, at which time the relative humidity drops below 44% three days out of four. The most humid day is likely to fall around March 1st, where humidity levels may rise above 76% three days out of four.

    Furthermore, over the course of a typical March the dew point ranges from a dry 9°C to a mildly humid 18°C, rarely dropping below 2°C or exceeding 21°C. This means that between March 1st and March 31st the air is relatively comfortable with dew points that are neither too dry nor too muggy.


    Over the course of a typical March wind speeds vary from 1 m/s to 7 m/s, which is considered as a light to moderate breeze. The highest average wind speed of 4 m/s usually occurs around March 21st, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 7 m/s.

    The lowest average wind speed of 4 m/s occurs around March 1st, when the average daily maximum wind speed is 6 m/s. At this time of year the wind is most often coming from a southern direction.

    Average Sea Temperature

    The sea temperature in March is pleasantly warm at 22°C, which is warm enough to go for a swim. During the summer months sea temperatures can get quite hot, for example in August the water temperature can increase to a hot 33°C.

    Weather Hazards

    Over recent years there have been a small number of sand storms occurring in March. On March 10th in 2009 a moderate sandstorm reached Dubai which obscured visibility and covered the streets in sand and dust.

    Furthermore, on March 2nd in 2010, strong winds again hit Dubai and other regions of the United Arab Emirates. Sand storms in this region are usually caused by strong north-westerly winds blowing from Saudi Arabia which carry sand from the desert.
