How Did Dubai Make It Rain?
- Anthony Watkins
The United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) government has used a practice known as cloud seeding as part of its plan to alleviate the nation’s severe water shortage. There are a few different names for cloud seeding, including “man generated precipitation,” “artificial rain creation,” and “cloud seeding.” The United Arab Emirates was one of the first nations in the Arabian Gulf area to implement cloud seeding technology, making it a pioneer in the field.
Because of the country’s severely dry environment, UAE researchers have begun to implement cloud seeding technology in an effort to alleviate the country’s severe water shortage. They do this by using weather radar to keep a constant eye on the atmosphere around the country. It has been predicted by meteorologists and other experts that cloud seeding operations can increase rainfall by up to 30–35% in an environment with low levels of humidity, and by up to 10-15% in an atmosphere with higher levels of humidity.
Because it is impossible to anticipate the long-term global repercussions of this practice, it has given rise to worries over the influence that it will have on the environment.0:27 Cloud seeding showers in Dubai
Does it ever rain in Dubai?
Seasonal climate: Due to Dubai’s location close to the Tropic of Cancer, the city has a climate that is generally warm and sunny throughout the year. The daytime temperature during the winter season is often about 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Nighttime temperatures along the shore vary from 12 degrees Celsius (54 degrees Fahrenheit) to 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit), whereas in the desert they are 5 degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit), with the evenings being reasonably chilly throughout the year.
- The humidity often ranges between 50 and 60 percent in inland locations that are close to the shore.
Temperatures in Dubai may reach well beyond 43 degrees Celsius (109 degrees Fahrenheit) during the summer months, with July and August being the months in which this occurs most frequently. Additionally, the water temperature might reach 37 degrees Celsius (99 degrees Fahrenheit), and the humidity could reach an average of over 90 percent.
- It does not rain in Dubai very often, and when it does, it usually does not persist for very long.
- Short, intense downpours and the odd thunderstorm are the most common types of precipitation that fall throughout the winter months, which span from November to March.
- There are just about 25 days per year when it rains on average.
With an average rainfall of 34 millimeters (1.4 inches), the month of February is the wettest in Dubai. During the month of June, Dubai has very little precipitation, if any at all. Despite the fact that June is the driest month of the year in Dubai, it is still possible for heavy rain and thunderstorms to occur on select days during this month.
- June 21, 2019, is an example of one of these days.
- Additionally, rainfall is observed in the months of March and December.
- The amount of precipitation that falls during the months of January, April, July, October, and November is approximately typical, whereas the amount of precipitation that falls during the months of May, August, and September is much less.
The current month has an average high temperature that is higher than 43 degrees Celsius (109 degrees Fahrenheit), making it the hottest month of the year. The coldest month is January, with average highs of about 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) and average lows of around 16 degrees Celsius (61 degrees Fahrenheit).
- The months of July and August in Dubai tend to be extremely hot and humid, with temperatures topping approximately 45 °C (113 °F), and with lows of scarcely less than 30 °C (86 °F), making it the most uncomfortable season to visit Dubai.
- The temperatures can reach as high as 45 °C (113 °F) in the shade.
Temperatures are hot but actually rather pleasant throughout the months of May, June, September, and October, with highs of no more than 41 °C (106 °F) and lows of around 27 °C (81 °F) on average; this makes it a perfect season to visit the beach or swimming pool.
