The east coast and northern emirates will enjoy slightly cooler conditions on Wednesday, whilst the rest of the UAE continues to roast.

While clear skies in Dubai will see temperatures reach 41C on Wednesday, Fujairah will reach a maximum of 36C.

The mountains in the north are likely to feel cooler still at 32C, but it will remain hot in Abu Dhabi, with the mercury peaking at 45C, but feeling more like 63C as humidity levels hit 25 per cent.

Some clouds will form over some eastern areas, bringing a risk of a shower by mid-afternoon.

Light to moderate winds in general, freshening at times, may cause blowing dust and haze over exposed areas.

Overnight temperatures will continue to rise above 30C in coastal areas, and a high of 45C is expected for Thursday in Dubai.
