Weather conditions in Dubai and Abu Dhabi on Friday will be humid, hazy and partially cloudy with a moderate breeze.

Temperatures are predicted to hit 36°C in the afternoon, with moderate winds in both cities.

The UAE weather bureau has warned of rainy conditions across the country over the next five days.

On Friday, rain clouds may form in the north, east and south, moving westwards. On Saturday, there is a chance of rain in eastern and southern parts of the country which may linger into Sunday.

The National Center of Meteorology forecasts dusty winds on Monday.

Dubai and most of the Northern Emirates were lashed by a rain storm last week, causing flooding in some parts of the city.

Forecasters say the unstable conditions are typical for this time of year as the country transitions into winter.

"Some days are stable but some are bad. It is unpredictable and low-pressure systems can sweep in from both the east and from the west,” said an NCM forecaster.

On Thursday, thundershowers and hailstorms lashed the northern and eastern regions of the UAE flooding stretches of roads and filling up wadis.
