Hiding from the cold: February weather in the UAE, sea temperature and comments from tourists
When February comes in Russia, most people are already tired of snow and winter. Monotonous white landscapes bored. Necessary to wear warm heavy clothes. I want to go somewhere, where instead of white snow there will be white sand, and the sun will not only shine, but also warm. You know, there is such a place, and it is not far from Russia. Many tourists say that the weather in the UAE in February 2022 is simply gorgeous. There is no exhausting heat, the water temperature is excellent and if you want you can swim, although not everyone does it. But all with a pleasure to relax on the sandy beaches, shopping and going on excursions. Do you want the same? Then read more about the climate in the Emirates in late winter.
According to statistics, February is not the favorite month for tourists from Russia. Someone is tired of winter, and just waiting for spring, someone is departing from the New Year holidays, and someone is resting in the mountains and skiing. All this is good, but even better to escape from the captivity of snow and for a few days to fly to the sea, for example, to the resorts of the UAE. We will tell you why the Emirates in the last winter month are attractive and whether it’s worth flying there at all.
Immediately tell you that it does not rain at this time of year. Many tourists think that this month it rains and high humidity. In fact, this is not the case. It never rains completely, let alone for a few days. This is a desert, after all. But short-term downpours do happen. As a rule, they last a few minutes. But they can last for an hour. In a month there is not more than 10 millimeters of precipitation, which is very little. But still, February is considered one of the wettest months of the year.
We have already mentioned that there is no heat in the country in February. And this is true. The average daytime air temperature is about +24 degrees. A few days during the month it may rise to +28, but such days are few, no more than three. Also the temperature is unlikely to drop below twenty degrees, and we can say that the weather here is stable and without dramatic changes.
During the nights also everything is stable. After sunset the temperature drops a little and becomes +18 +20 degrees. In the evenings and nights you can feel a little breeze, which is sometimes cool, but not cold. At dawn, the temperature is the lowest, around +16 degrees. But this does not scare away tourists, who by the thousands gathered on the beach and wait for sunrise. After sunrise it will be a couple of hours, and the air will warm up again to a comfortable +24 degrees.

Also we mentioned that not all tourists go swimming in the sea. The reason for that is its temperature. Near Abu Dhabi, the water is heated to +20 degrees, and near Dubai it is a little warmer and around +22. For residents of northern countries such water is just fire, but for most it is not suitable. In February at sea you can see surfers who ride the waves. Fans of diving are also there, because they are not cold in protective suits.

Tourist feedback on the weather in the UAE in February
“Had a great holiday! It was warm during the day, sometimes a little hot. The sea is a little invigorating, but I was happy to swim for a few minutes at a time. It did not rain, and rare clouds in the sky are not even noticeable. Pleasantly surprised the prices – they are lower than usual here. Apparently the tourists are not in season this month.
“From the first days of stay in the Emirates, the sun was shining. From morning till evening it shines and warms with its warmth. The heat is not felt, and you can easily walk around and enjoy your rest. But all is not so cloudless: the sea is not warm, so it is not comfortable to swim in it. But some tourists bathed. I just wet my feet. In general, the holiday is interesting, the main thing is not to sit in one place.
