After overnight weather warnings of high winds, which reached around 60kmph at sea and created wave heights of 16 feet, fresh to strong north-westerly winds are due to continue through the day on Wednesday, with the risk of low visibility due to dust.

Another slight fall in temperature is expected with the wind speed decreasing and relative humidity rising overnight and into early Thursday morning over coastal and internal areas.


Thursday morning could see fog or mist. Rough seas are due in the Arabian Gulf and Oman Sea.

Tuesday’s highest temperature was 36.9°C at Fujairah Airport at 2.45pm. The temperature in a cloudy Abu Dhabi is due to be about 26°C today, while it will rise over the coming days and into the weekend as the clouds clear.
