Scattered clouds around the UAE and reports predicting rain may have raised residents’ hopes but Dubai International Airport duty forecaster Clive Stevens dashed them with his forecast.

“It’s generally going to be warm and pleasant, so enjoy,” Stevens said.

Stevens wouldn’t rule out the slightest chance of a shower over the mountains but said it was more likely to fall in Iran or the Northern Gulf region.

While there would be some high cloud around, temperatures were predicted to be slightly above average this week with a maximum of 29 degree Celsius and minimum of 20 degree Celsius.

Winds were to remain light, with only 10 knots at sea yesterday afternoon, but there was the possibility of a ‘shamal’ (duststorm) next week although Stevens was doubtful the shamal would bring rain either.
