Weather conditions in the UAE on Saturday are expected to be hot during daytime and partly cloudy or hazy at times, said the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM). However, some parts of the country will see partly cloudy to cloudy weather with a chance of rainfall.

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

Also, this morning, NCM reported dusty conditions due to the winds in parts of the UAE with deterioration of horizontal visibility.

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.

Temperatures are expected to remain hot and gradually increase. The highest temperature recorded over the country yesterday was 47.7°C in Gasyoura (Al Dhafrah Area) at 3:45pm.

The maximum temperature in the country is expected to be between 44 and 49°C and the lowest temperature is expected to be 28-33°C.

In the coastal areas, temperature highs will be between 42-46°C, and 32-37°C in the mountainous regions.

Humidity will be moderate in the UAE with 65-85 per cent in the coastal areas whereas in the mountainous regions it is expected to be 35-50 per cent and 50-70 per cent in the internal areas.

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