12 Reasons Why We Love The Rain In Dubai

Find out when you can expect rain...over the next couple of days


So, the rain is on it's way back AGAIN! Expect showers at about 10pm tonight (Monday) and then again around 1pm tomorrow afternoon. Neither spell should last long but it's good to know incase you have an al fresco meal planned or a day at the beach. 

We are getting a bit tired of the rain and all the talk about the downpours, but it's not all bad. Here's the reasons we love it when it rains in Dubai...

1. It gives us an excuse to use our windscreen wipers

Although the dust can be a bit of an issue


2. We can use new hashtags on Instagram

And not to protect you from the sun
