The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology said temperatures across the country had chiefly been hot and dry across the country on Friday, with the exception of some small amount of rain in areas of Dubai and Sharjah, with less than a millimetre recorded in most areas.

A spokesman said there would be an extension of low pressure at the surface in a south-westerly direction today, which would bring worse weather and chances of light to moderate rain over the middle and northern regions, up to Al Ain. “We expect more rain will be coming tomorrow due to an increasing centre of low pressure located over UAE and the maximum effect will happen (today), with increased clouds especially over coastal and northern area and extending up to Al Ain.”

However, clouds should disappate by tonight and reduce chances of rain.

The wind would also change from a south-westerly to a north-easterly over the next three days, getting increasingly stronger from this morning and peaking tomorrow. This would cause rough seas — “sometimes very rough” — as well as a drop in temperatures, he said. Temperatures on Friday reached up to 30 degree Celsius in coastal areas, but that would take a sharp drop in the next few days. By tomorrow, maximum daytime temperatures may only reach 22 degree Celsius in coastal areas and 24 degree Celsius in central parts, the spokesman said.
