ABU DHABI (ALETIHAD)

July is one of the summer months with increased temperatures as the region and country are affected by the extension of thermal lows, the most important of which is the India monsoon low pressure, which raises the temperatures.

The eastern mountains and southern parts of the country are exposed to clouds, which develop due to mountains and high temperatures.

Rain in the afternoon extends over some interior areas. This month, the extension of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) has affected some areas of the country, especially in the second half, accompanied by convective rainy clouds. 

Land and sea breeze circulations play an important role during this month, as the country is affected by southeasterly winds during the night and morning, whereas northerly winds occur during the daytime.

The country is also sometimes affected by fresh southerly winds, especially during the morning, which may cause blowing dust, and fresh northwesterly winds, which sometimes cause blowing and suspended dust.

Some days, relative humidity increases in the early morning over some areas, and mist or fog may form during a few days of the month.
