April weather forecast and Climate
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

As the sun begins to climb in the sky, April brings some beautiful weather to the Emirates. Maximum temperatures are typically around 33°C, humidity is generally low and although winter systems are still possible they are becoming a lot less frequent. Expected rainfall is down to around 7 mm falling on three days during the month but in exceptional years rainfall has been as high as 60 mm. The coastal, afternoon sea breeze increases in strength as the temperature gradient between the land and the sea develops. The increase in temperature does however mean that the occasional storms that do develop can be violent with heavy rain and squalls. One particularly violent storm in 1981 produced golf ball sized hail stones and in 2003 a storm and squall produced mean winds of 53 kts gusting to 71 kts. As the month progresses, the high level Jet stream starts to move northwards, cutting off southward incursions of unsettled weather and cool Northwesterly winds to the region. The sea in coastal waters continues to warm up with a mean temperature for the month of about 25°C.
