Dubai: After a day of showers in the UAE on Tuesday, sunny with partly cloudy skies will greet UAE residents on Wednesday.

The rainclouds cleared on Tuesday afternoon to make way for sunny skies on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, humidity levels will rise to 85 per cent in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah as well as in interior areas. Mist or fog may form in interior areas as well.

The UAE will be affected by fresh northwesterly winds, becoming moderate by night with gusts of 40km/h.
