According to the National Center of Meteorology (NCM), today’s skies are looking fair in general and partly cloudy to cloudy at times northwards and eastwards, like in Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah.
There is a probability of light rain during the daytime and temperatures are expected to decrease slightly.
The relative humidity is expected to increase as night approaches and Friday morning over some internal areas.
The temperatures are expected to be in the mid to low 30s on average.
Dubai is currently at 22 °C with mostly sunny skies.
