There's hot and then there's HOT…and today's weather forecast really is remarkable. The National Center for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has reported 100 percent humidity in the Al Ghuwaifat area. It makes a huge difference to places like Dubai and other northern Emirates which were only recorded at 20 percent humid on Thursday.
The country's coastal areas are about 95 percent humid (40C-45C) and 90 percent in mountain and inner city areas (31C-38C and 43C-47C, respectively). The weather conditions are expected to last until Saturday meaning that evenings could be foggy and misty and visibility on the roads will be reduced to 1,000m.
