Caution is being advised for anyone planning outdoor activities this week, as hot and humid conditions continue across much of the country. Temperatures across the UAE will peak at around 45C over the next few days, but the soaring humidity will make it feel as if it’s, wait for it, a whopping 64 degrees.
Humidity will reach around 90% according to the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology, and winds of up to 20 kilometres per hour won’t help matters. Clear skies are forecast overnight, with temperatures remaining high at 30°C, and increased humidity levels to 74%.
Brisk 35kph winds, which may reach 50 kph are forecast for Abu Dhabi where temperatures are expected to be slightly cooler at 40°C, but humidity will remain high at 50%.
