Fujairah Weather

Fujairah Weather Overview
Many of the tourist blurbs play down the high summer temperatures and summarize Fujairah weather in this way:

“Fujairah has the most pleasant weather lasting 6 months between October and March. The weather is almost always sunny and sometimes cloudy with temperature not exceeding 25 degrees Celsius and rain is expected from time to time.”

In the summer, temperatures get into the mid to late 40’s. From October to March the temperatures are generally very pleasant.

While the average rainfall in the UAE is 4 inches a year Fujairah receives a higher than average yearly rainfall (usually in the winter months) which makes the emirate good for crop production.

Fujairah can be very humid and unpleasant during the summer, although September is generally regarded as the most humid month of the year.

There are occasional sand storms during the winter.
