Widespread dust storms in the UAE over the past few days are reportedly set to fade with a change in wind direction.

"The northwesterly winds will shift in direction," a spokesperson from National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) told Emirates 24/7.

The temperatures will spike, with maximums ranging between 45C and 49C, said the report.

"We are going from hot to hotter days,” said the NCMS.

Humidity levels are expected to rise, which could lead to the formation of fog or mist late at night and during mornings.

According to the forecast published by the NCMS website, weather was set to be “fair but partly cloudy” on Thursday.

“Light to moderate winds, freshening at times during daytime,” said the NCMS. “Relative humidity will increase during night and early morning times over some coastal areas, especially the western areas and mist may form.

“Moderate sea in the Arabian Gulf and moderate, rough at times, in Oman sea.”
