It will be a partly cloudy but warm start to Saturday in the UAE, with temperatures reaching 36C along the coast.

Light rain could fall over the mountains in eastern areas on Sunday as temperatures begin to climb into the 40s.

The cooler spell of weather will come to an end as daytime weekend temperatures climb from the mid-30s to reach 43C in Abu Dhabi and Dubai on Monday.

Cloud cover will remain in place for parts of the country, but there will be plenty of sunshine as skies clear along coastal areas in the afternoon.

Overnight, temperatures will peak at 25C on the west coast, but it will feel slightly cooler in eastern areas.

Light winds on Monday will pick-up speed to increase the chances of dust and reduced visibility in exposed areas.

Similar weather conditions are expected on Tuesday, although strengthening winds from the west could reach 25 kilometres per hour at times.
