Abu Dhabi is the perfect place for a sunshine break with a hot desert climate where temperatures can reach up to 30°C. In February, the average temperature is 20°C with sunshine duration of 8 hours day; definitely warm enough getting the shorts out on the fairways. There is only a 16% chance of precipitation over the course of the month, and the most likely chance of rain is around the end of the month. Luckily the tournament will be finished way before the end of the month.
