The temperature in the UAE is set to increase by as much as five degrees over the coming days, according to the latest reports from the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology.

The national forecaster said temperatures in the UAE are expected to reach 48 degrees in places.

“There will be a slight increase in temperature from today until Friday,” the forecaster told Gulf News. “If the maximum temperature today is 43 degree Celsius, we’re expecting it to reach around 48 degree Celsius. The internal areas will be hotter than coastal areas.”

The weather is not expected to be as dusty, however, as it was earlier this week.

“At the beginning of the week, the dust-laden wind coming from Saudi Arabia affected the country. At the same time on Sunday, fresh wind from the western region, where a sandstorm was taking place, contributed to the hazy conditions in the country,” the forecaster added.
