UAE weather: Overcast skies and haze keep temperatures mild



ABU DHABI // Partly cloudy skies and haze are expected to keep temperatures tolerable today.

The highest temperature expected inland is 42°C, dipping as low as 19°C in the evening, and a range of 20°C to 37°C is expected along the coast.

The lowest temperature recorded today was 17°C in Hamim at 5.45am, according to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology.

Moderate winds will keep the air cool but may turn the sea rough in the Arabian Gulf and Sea of Oman.

Commuters are advised to allow extra travel time as humidity is expected to increase overnight leading to potential fog on Tuesday morning.

Similar conditions are expected through to Wednesday.
