Forecasters have said that rain could fall in the UAE on Saturday and Sunday.

Eastern and southern parts of the country may be affected, with low surface pressure contributing to clouds forming later in the day.

"Clouds formation over some eastern and southern areas, may become convective associated with rainfall," the National Centre of Meteorology said, in its forecast for Saturday.

There is also a chance on rain on Sunday in the east of the country, the forecaster said.

Weather conditions in Dubai on Saturday are expected to be humid and partially cloudy with a moderate breeze.

Temperatures are predicted to hit 37°C in the afternoon, with freshening winds of up to 15 miles per hour.

Humidity is predicted to be greatest during the night and into the morning, which could make temperatures harder to bear.

The forecast for Abu Dhabi promises a similar day of cloud and light winds.

Peak temperatures are expected to be slightly lower, at 36°C, but with lighter breezes of only 12 miles per hour.
