UAE weather: Winter ends as 42°C temperatures recorded
NCM expects weather to be 'rather hot' during the day.
Good bye, pleasant, chilly evenings, and hello, light clothes!
It looks like the winter season has well and truly ended as the mercury has crossed the 40-degree-Celsius-mark multiple times already.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) on Saturday reported that the highest temperature recorded in the UAE was 42°C. It was recorded in Dubai’s Saih Al Salem area around 2pm.
The UAE recorded a highest of 41.6°C on Friday, and 42°C on Thursday.
In its general weather forecast for the week, the authority predicts it to be "rather hot" during daytime.
The lowest temperatures, meanwhile, continue to remain below 20°C, with a chilly 9.4°C recorded on March 23.
The NCM had warned of an increase in temperature earlier today, with humidity set to reach a maximum of 85 per cent in interior regions.
March 2021 was to mark the end of the winter season, according to weather forecasters.
