Visibility reduced to as low as 800 metres in open areas around Dubai yesterday morning as south to south-westerly winds picked up speeds between 15 and 20 knots, according to Dubai Meteorological Office duty forecaster Dr SK Gupta.
Dusty conditions were not as poor in the city where visibility was recorded at 3500 metres at Dubai International Airport.
Visibility improved after 1pm when the wind transformed into sea breeze from the north-west.
Dr Gupta said similar patterns of dusty strong winds in the morning and an afternoon sea breeze would prevail until Thursday.
“The visibility will deteriorate between 9am and 12 noon but early morning on the roads will be no problem,” he said.
Temperatures were also expected to rise this week with Jebel Ali already recording 46 degrees Celsius yesterday.
“The all-time high is 47.5 degrees Celsius. All stations will be above 40 this week,” he said.
Gupta said the new recording equipment at Jebel Ali at the new airport site, Dubai World Central, was noting higher temperatures because of the site’s location slightly inland and away from cooling water bodies.
Sharjah recorded 42.4 degrees Celsius yesterday but because of its inland position experienced a lower minimum of 21.8 degrees compared to a minimum of 28.3 degrees in Dubai.
Dubai’s temperature peaked at 44 degrees yesterday.
