High temperatures and humidity have made Friday one of the most uncomfortable days of the summer so far.

The National Centre of Meteorology has said the weather will be hot to very hot across the UAE with some low clouds appearing over the eastern coast.

There will be light to moderate winds in general which will blow dust over some exposed areas.

The relative humidity will increase overnight and in the morning over coastal areas, this will create a probability of fog or mist.

Temperatures are expected to drop slightly on Saturday with low clouds appearing on the eastern coast in the morning, becoming convective by the afternoon along the mountains.
