Dubai: Extremely hot weather is expected across most parts of the UAE today. According to the National Center of Meteorology (NCM), skies across the UAE are looking clear to partly cloudy with high temperatures and humid conditions. However, some parts of the country will see partly cloudy weather with a chance of rainfall.

The NCM said: “The weather in general will be partly cloudy especially over the Eastern areas with some rainy convective clouds formation.”

A warm breeze will blow across the country during the day. The NCM also said: “Light to moderate Southeasterly to Northeasterly winds, freshening at times, will result in blowing dust and sand over some areas with a speed of 15 - 25, reaching 40 km/hr.”

Drivers should be careful on the road as the dust might hinder visibility. Those who suffer from allergies should also take precautions when going outside.
