August weather forecast and Climate
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Conditions during August are similar to those experienced in July in terms of temperature and humidity. During the summer as the sea surface temperature rises, the Gulf increasingly becomes a prolific source of water vapour. Afternoon sea breezes bring this warm, humid air to coastal areas and can produce some of the years most uncomfortable conditions. The risk of summer storms persists and although most frequent over the mountains can occasionally affect coastal areas. Inland desert areas, have a rather different climate, although summer maximum temperatures in the desert are frequently higher than those on the coast the mean humidity is up to 20% lower than coastal areas. This produces rather more comfortable conditions and is the reason that, prior to the prevalence of air conditioning, many local families would spend the summer months away from the coast. Mean sea temperatures are around 33°C but have been recorded as high as 35°C.
