The relative humidity is expected to increase by night and Thursday morning, especially over northern areas.

There is also going to be an increase in temperatures, which are expected to be in the low to high 40s on average.

Dubai is currently at 35 °C with mostly sunny skies.

Winds are also expected to repeatedly blow, at a speed of 20 – 30 km/h, reaching up to 40 km/h at times.

The winds are expected to blow dust and sand into the air. Drivers should be careful on the road as the dust is expected to hinder horizontal visibility. Those who suffer from allergies should also take precautions when going outside.
