While July marks the peak summer for UAE, September also remains extremely hot. The average maximum temperature for September remains above 40°C throughout the first half of September and drops marginally in the second half.
The conditions will remain sunny with no possibility of any rain throughout the month.

The first matchday, September 19, is expected to be a hot day in Abu Dhabi, with a maximum temperature of more than 40°C. Similar conditions are expected in Dubai and Sharjah as well. Over the next 7 days, maximum temperatures will range between 37 to 39°C in all three venues.
The match time (6 pm to 10.30 pm local time) temperatures, however, are expected to remain in the range of 32-34°C. Clear skies will prevail over the region during the match hours, from Saturday to next Friday, in all three locations.

Slightly windy conditions are expected with wind speeds of more than 10 kmph.

#IPL2020 #IndianPremierLeague @IPL #IPL #IPLWeather #MIvCSK #ipl2020 #Dream11IPL
During the match hours, the humidity could be a significant factor as it crosses 70% as the Sun goes down. The dew point temperatures in all three venues vary between 23-25°C at night time, while the minimum temperatures range between 26-28°C.

Therefore, the players could struggle with the hot and sultry conditions while the dew factor could affect bowlers, especially spinners, to grip the ball. The dew at night hours could make the outfield wet, slow and slippery.

The IPL Venues

The shopping paradise Dubai is the most populous city in UAE, spreading over more than 4,100 sq. km. The Dubai International Cricket Stadium will host four of the seven matches over the next seven days: Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday.

Hot and humid weather marks the climate of all three coastal cities hosting this year's IPL for most parts of the year.

The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi will host two matches over the next seven days: the opener on Friday and another clash between the MI and the Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday.
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and its second-most populous city after Dubai.

#IPL2020 #IndianPremierLeague @IPL #IPL #IPLWeather #ipl2020 #Dream11IPL
#Sharjah is a neighbouring city to Dubai and is the third most populous city in UAE. All cricket fans are nostalgic about Sharjah, with @sachin_rt's centuries in 1998 marking the high point.

#IPL2020 #IndianPremierLeague @IPL #IPL #IPLWeather #ipl2020 #Dream11IPL
Now, as the grand cricketing fest returns to UAE amid extremely unusual times, fans are hoping that empty stadiums won't dampen the excitement of the gentlemen's game in the gulf.
