February weather forecast and Climate
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Temperatures increase a degree or so in February with mean maximums typically around 25 °C, however the extreme maximum temperature has reached 36°C with a minimum as low as 7°C. Unsettled wintry weather is more frequent, winter Shamals persist with the associated unsettled weather and strong winds. This makes February one of the windiest months with regular Shamals affecting the Gulf. Shamals bring cool, windy and occasionally showery conditions to the southern Gulf. Ahead of an approaching shamal strong Southeasterly winds often develop bringing hot, dry conditions and occasional sandstorms. The transition from Southeasterly winds ahead of the trough to the Northwesterly Shamal is therefore usually associated with a marked fall in temperature. February is the wettest month of the year, with an average of 25mm of rain, it also holds the record for the most rainfall in a day, 150.2 mm in 1988 at Dubai Airport. The expected number of rain days during the month is 5 but has been as high as 12. The relatively warm, moist air over the Gulf combined with winter weather patterns helps to fuel cloud and storm development. Local convergence and the effect of the mountains in the east of the country also act to generate or enhance rainfall.
