What to expect when visiting Dubai in June
Dubai’s average day time maximum temperature in June is 39.8°C (103.6°F).
Summer really starts to hit its full intensity in June. Day time highs can hit as much as 47.9°C (118.2°F) whilst overnight the average minimum is 27.7°C (81.9°F). Humidity is lower than the peak of summer and the days are long, clear and generally blue-skied, though too hot really for daytime activities outdoor even from the start of June.
Whilst the emirate of Dubai is still very much welcoming tourists to return in 2021, and restaurant and entertainment venues had capacity restrictions lifted in May, there is still a possibility that advertised events could be cancelled last minute or postponed.

Dubai Sea Temperature in June
In June you should expect sea temperatures on average of 31.7°C (89.1°F). Sea temperatures at the start of the month can be as low as 30.4°C (87.8°F) but expect highs up to 33°C (90.4°F) in the water.
It is still pleasant enough swimming temperatures where it is just cooler to be in the water than outside but make no mistake, it’s getting steamy out there as you head into the summer’s hottest months in Dubai. Visiting a water park or a resort with a swimming pool chiller might need to be on the cards for June.
Other weather patterns that are common in Dubai in June

What should I pack for June in Dubai?
As you hit peak temperatures in Dubai it’s really about dressing for the heat. Ideally pack cotton clothing that can deal with the heat and sweat, along with your other essentials such as antiperspirants, sunscreen, sunglass and a hat. We talk more about dressing respectfully while still coping with the heat here.
At any time of year, we recommend packing a shawl or something with long sleeves if you are going to be indoors as the air conditioning can be fierce!
