During the initial phase of Ramadan, which corresponds to the spring season, temperatures are anticipated to be moderate across most regions during the daytime. However, as the month progresses, temperatures are projected to increase, particularly in the latter half.

The center predicts that typical nighttime temperatures during Ramadan will be moderate to pleasantly chilly, with lower midnight and dawn temperatures during the first half of the month. According to climate statistics for this time period, maximum temperatures normally fall between 29 and 34 °C on average; however, some interior locations have afternoon highs of up to 45 °C. On the other hand, the lowest minimum temperature drops to about 3 °C in some inland or mountainous areas in the early morning. Average minimum temperatures range from 18 to 21 °C.

The duration between the dawn call to prayer and sunset at the start of Ramadan spans approximately 13 hours and 14 minutes, gradually increasing as the month progresses. By the end of Ramadan, this duration will extend to about 13 hours and 57 minutes, based on observations from Abu Dhabi and its environs. However, these timings may slightly vary depending on the specific location, with possible fluctuations of a few minutes occurring at the beginning or end of the month.

Moreover, the National Center of Meteorology forecasts moderate daytime temperatures during the initial phase of Ramadan, transitioning to warmer conditions as the month progresses. Nights are expected to be generally cool, with variations in temperature based on geographic location, while the duration of fasting hours will gradually increase throughout the month.
