ABU DHABI // It should come of no surprise that it’s hot this time of year – but this weekend will be a particularly hot one.
Heat and humidity will be on the rise this weekend as temperatures edge close to 50°C.
Humidity will be about 80 per cent, according to the NCMS weather centre in Abu Dhabi.
Over the course of the next 48 hours’ forecasters urged that the weather “looks to be partly cloudy and hazy at times over some areas with a chance of some connective clouds developing over the eastern and southern areas by afternoon”.
Beat the heat
Forecasters warned of slight to moderate winds during the daytime over exposed areas that will kick up raging dust.
Relative humidity will rise late at night and in the early morning over some coastal western areas.
Sea waters will be slight to moderate in the Arabian Gulf, and moderate in the Sea of Oman although it may become rough at times.
