Dear All,

I need the weather data for Dubai for my doctoral research. Data-sets produced by Meteonorm are preferred. I would appreciate if you could send me the files (at least the epw file).

Best, Aryan

Hey, There is a similar question in another forum, which advises to use the weather files for AbuDhabi for Dubai, as they have similar climates. This is in case you aren't able to find data from the sources mentioned in the previous comments!

@gokulram Climates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai are not that similar..

Actually I contacted Meteonorm and they generously sent me the weather data of Dubai. Seemingly they support academic researchers by providing weather data files of a couple of locations for free.
