March rains are expected in the UAE

Forecasters have not ruled out the occurrence of precipitation in the form of rain during the holy month of Ramadan in March. Storm Centre, the United Arab Emirates’ meteorological expert, did not rule out that rains could occur in the “last 10 days of March”.

The highest rainfall (50 to 80 mm) is expected in inland areas, while coastal areas will receive less (10 to 40 mm). Abu Dhabi’s coastal areas will receive 10 to 20 mm of rainfall, while inland areas will receive 25 to 50 mm. In Sharjah and Dubai – from 15 to 50 mm.

The UAE National Meteorology Centre earlier published a weather forecast for the days of the holy month of Ramadan. Weather conditions will be mostly pleasant during Ramadan, forecasters said.

Temperatures will be comfortable at night and in the morning, ranging from +18°C to +21°C, but the second half of the holy month will begin to warm up sharply. Temperatures could rise to +45°C in the interior of the UAE.

Rain is unlikely during Ramadan, they said, with the average rainfall in March being just 9mm. Despite this, there is a chance of short showers, and mornings may produce fog and haze. Humidity levels will be lower than usual, bringing relief on hot days.

Overnight and early morning will see the highest humidity with 70 to 78 per cent, daytime humidity will range from 20 to 30 per cent. Southerly winds will prevail during the night and morning, changing to north-westerly winds in the afternoon.

The fasting time will gradually increase from 13 hours 14 minutes at the beginning of the month to 13 hours 57 minutes by the end of Ramadan. In general, the first winter Ramadan in 24 years will be comfortable for fasting people.
