Fujairah in September

‘September is Like No Other…’
There’s a positive feeling that comes when ripping off the August page on the calendar and revealing the month of September.

In the southern hemisphere ‘Spring is in the air’ with blossom abounding, football finals looming, a warming up and a drying out after the harshness of winter.

In the northern hemisphere, there’s often the relief that the mercury is dropping and in many countries the Fall brings with it an unsurpassed beauty.

September in the Emirates
Here in Fujairah and the United Arab Emirates generally the seasons are not as marked as in countries closer to the poles. September does signal a change from the VERY HOT season (this year the thermometer got to 54 degrees Celsius) to the HOT season.

Temperatures in Fujairah are currently down to the low thirties but the key factor is the humidity. Unfortunately September in Fujairah (and possibly in other parts of the UAE) is known for being the most humid month of the year.

As the Fujairah Weather gauge (on the Fujairah in Focus blog) states at the time of writing:
Temperature: 32 degrees Celsius
Feels Like: 46 degrees Celsius
Humidity: 89%

The humidity is the major negative factor in this season which brings with it haze and washed out skies.

Overwhelmingly, however, September introduces the season of change, newness and looking forward.

September is a good time for people to visit the emirate of Fujairah.
