Abu Dhabi Weather

Monday, May 3, 2010


Over the past few days, the temperature has risen dramatically to the point that I don't even want to go outside if the sun is up. The other day, I went running at 5:15 and a block away, noticed a bank clock with the temperature saying 28 Celsius (77 Fahrenheit). On the way back 40 minutes later, it said 32 Celsius (83 Fahrenheit).

However, it's interesting what a difference the wind makes. Today was reasonable because of the wind. The obvious reason is that the wind cools you down. The less obvious reason is that the wind kicks up so much dust and sand that it blocks out the sun, cooling everything down. And it makes it difficult to keep your eyes open with all the sand getting blown in your eyes.
