Temperatures in the UAE could reach 49 degrees Celsius on Tuesday, the country’s National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology has predicted.

The centre has forecast average temperatures of 48 degrees Celsius in most areas of the UAE on Tuesday, but it is likely to rise to 49 degrees Celsius in southern and eastern parts of the country and remain there into Wednesday.

The centre also predicted strong winds across the UAE, which are expected to whip up sand and reduce visibility in the morning.

Motorists have been advised to exercise caution due to the weather conditions.
