The tail end of the freak summer storm seen in recent days will cause some rain clouds in the east and south on Saturday.

Following the unusual combination of summer hail and heavy rainfall on Friday, things should return to normal on Saturday with some cloudy areas and a chance of rain in some areas.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi should expect high temperatures in the low 40s tomorrow.

The National Centre of Meteorology has predicted some light to moderate wind which may kick up some dust and sand during the day.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are expected to experience humidity levels at the upper limit of 80 and 75 per cent respectively. Forecasts are for humidity particularly overnight on Sunday, into Monday morning.

In Dubai lows of 31°C and highs of 42°C have been predicted. In Abu Dhabi temperatures of 31 °C to 42 °C, the same range, should be expected.

In the morning the sea in the Arabian Gulf will be moderate, with predictions of similar but perhaps slightly fairer conditions in the Oman Sea.

Moving into Monday, across the country clouds are expected once again with the possibility of a refreshing south-easterly to north-easterly wind.
