UAE siz­zles af­ter sud­den hu­mid­ity spike

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Fore­cast­ers have said to ex­pect hot and un­com­fort­able weather in the com­ing days as high tem­per­a­tures co­in­cide with high hu­mid­ity. The Na­tional Cen­tre for Me­te­o­rol­ogy and Seis­mol­ogy says that the mer­cury stood at 46C yes­ter­day along coastal ar­eas and is likely to re­main around that level in the com­ing days. Hu­mid­ity is fore­cast to be 70-90 per cent, a bul­letin from the weather cen­tre read. In­land ar­eas, such as Al Ain and Liwa, could hit 48C. For to­day, the bul­letin added: “The rel­a­tive hu­mid­ity is likely to in­crease dur­ing night and early morn­ing over some western coastal ar­eas, with a chance of mist/fog for­ma­tion.” Seas will be light to mod­er­ate, with wave heights of one to two feet in­shore in both the Gulf wa­ters and the Sea of Oman. Hu­mid­ity is typ­i­cally low in the drier, mid-sum­mer months and rises in late Au­gust and Septem­ber as tem­per­a­tures drop.
