Today, the weather conditions in the UAE are expected to be hot during the day and dusty at times, said the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM).

The NCM said: “The weather will be hot during daytime over some internal areas and some low clouds will appear over eastern coast by morning."

Also, a warm breeze will blow across the country during the day. The NCM said: “Light to moderate Northwesterly winds, freshening at times, will result in blowing dust and sand over some areas with a speed of 15 - 25, reaching 35 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.

There is a gradual increase in the temperatures. The highest temperature recorded over the country yesterday was 49.8°C in Sweihan at 2:15 pm.

The maximum temperature in the country is expected to be between 44 and 49°C and the lowest temperature is expected to be 23-28°C.

In the coastal areas, temperature highs will be between 42-46°C, and 31-36°C in the mountainous regions.

The sea will be slight in the Arabian Gulf and in Oman Sea.
