The UAE is set for a week of sunshine and heat after a rainy weekend at the Dubai World Cup.

Both Abu Dhabi and Dubai are due sunshine and heat throughout Monday, with temperatures rising to as high as 38°C and 37°C respectively, according to BBC Weather.

The two emirates are expected to have some cloudy spells from around 1pm, which is expected to last until 6pm.

But throughout the afternoon there will still be sunny intervals and temperatures are expected to remain warm with a gentle breeze.

Temperatures are due to be slightly cooler on Tuesday and Wednesday before rising again towards the end of the week.

Although Dubai is expected to be sunny on these two days, a brief bout of rain is expected in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday afternoon.

Today, though, dust clouds may raise humidity levels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai with sunny skies in the other emirates.

The day’s temperature will range between lows of 22°C and highs of 39°C in Abu Dhabi, 22°C to 38°C in Dubai, 22°C to 37°C in Sharjah, 22°C to 36°C in Ras Al Khaimah and 21°C to 30°C in Fujairah.
