The United Arab Emirate’s spring season ends officially today. Astronomically on June 21, the summer season will begin.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Emirates Astronomical Society, Ibrahim Al Jarwan, posted on Twitter on Monday, June 20, to say goodbye to the spring season of 2022. He further said the summer season would last for three months.


The season will start on June 21, with the longest day of the year, with around 14 hours of daylight.

As per the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the daytime will be hot and partly cloudy. Relaxation will possibly come on Friday in the form of rainfall and a reduction in temperatures.

Astronomically, the summer solstice observes the beginning of the summer season.

The temperature has skyrocketed this month, with the last two days reporting around 50°C. But, due to the cloud-seeding operations, Al Ain and a few other parts of the nation witnessed some heavy rains during last week.

Schools will stay closed in July and August for the summer vacations. Travel demand rocketed during this period, with most immigrant families going back to their countries for holidays.

Dubai-based Emirates Airlines stated that it is readying for its busiest period, with around 550,000 customers predicted to fly out from the UAE during June and July.


The airline stated in a press statement that Daily booking volumes are accelerating as summer vacations are coming closer, and Emirates is asking customers who have not planned their holidays or made any travel arrangements yet to book as soon as possible so as to make sure that they are able to travel on their preferred flights and dates.

The summer season will also witness the Islamic festival Eid Al Adha. This would be a four-day weekend for residents. According to astronomy, the holiday would possibly be from Friday, July 8, to Monday, July 11.
