It's going to get extremely humid across the UAE over the next 24 hours. Humidity levels could reach as high as 95 per cent in some parts of the country by the evening over some internal and coastal areas with the high levels set to persist into the next few days. There will also be a chance of fog by early Wednesday morning, the National Centre of Meteorology reported (NCM) on Tuesday.

More broadly, it's forecast to be fair to partly cloudy across the UAE, becoming hazy at times, the NCM said.

Winds will be light to moderate and the sea will also be light to moderate in the Arabian Gulf and Oman Sea.

Temperatures could hit highs of 33C with lows forecast of just 10C in mountainous areas.
