UAE sweats as humidity rises
Humidity levels in the country are hitting100 per cent during the night and early mornings, as summer arrives in earnest, writes Mahak Mannan.
According to the National Centre Of Meteorology And Seismology, humidity is going to remain high in the coming weeks. “The coastal areas of the country like Abu Dhabi are already experiencing 100 per cent humidity along with parts of Dubai too,” said a meteorologist. “This level of humidity is expected to continue throughout the summer across all cities in the Emirates, especially during the nights. “The increase in humidity is also causing a lot of deep fog to gather, especially along the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway during the early hours of the day which means daily commuters need to be very cautious on the road since visibility will be low,” he added. Although temperatures fell slightly in the past few days due to winds, they are expected to gradually increase this week. The next few days are expected to be sunny, with no clouds in Abu Dhabi and Dubai with temperatures hitting 41C in Abu Dhabi and 42C in Dubai. Humidity hit 84 per cent in the capital yesterday morning and 75 in Dubai, Accuweather reported.
