A cool week lies ahead for much of the UAE, with Sunday overnight temperatures forecast to fall to 12ºC in some parts.

Monday will be mostly sunny and warm, with peak temperatures of 27ºC, although as night falls those will drop to 12ºC in Ras Al Khaimah and 13C in Al Ain.

There is the possibility of mist and fog along coastal areas overnight on Monday and into Tuesday morning.

Although it will remain dry for the week, north-westerly wind speeds will increase to up to 50 kilometres an hour at times, leading to blowing dust and sand on Wednesday.

Temperatures are set to continue falling through the week to a low of 24ºC on Thursday.
