Summer will begin in mid June and continue until September: Met official
The first day of spring in the UAE will start on March 15, according to the country’s Met department.
“The spring season will start from March 15 and continue till June 15 following which the summer season will commence and continue till September 15,” a National Centre for Metreology and seismology (NCMS) official told Arabian Business.
In its monthly weather bulletin, Dubai Municipality, however, put the period of March to May as spring season, stating temperatures will start to climb gradually.
“March is the transition period in the region; this means there will be an abundant supply of energy available for the development of all meteorological parameters such as thunder clouds, cold storms, high humidity and fog,” said Iman Ahmad Al Khatibi Al Falasi, head of Geodetic and Marine Survey Section at the municipality survey department.
Average maximum temperature will be 28 degrees Celsius; and winter weather pattern will continue with the weather remaining cold at night, the department said.
