Hot and hazy weather will continue across much of the UAE on Thursday, with the possibility of fog and mist formation in the west.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology said light to moderate winds are expected to reach speed as high as 48kph along internal areas and 45kph over the coast. The southerly-easterly winds will cause blowing dust over exposed areas.

Daytime temperatures will peak at 34°C in Abu Dhabi and 36°C in Dubai.

Temperatures will range across the country from 27°C to 48°C inland, 28°C to 45°C along the coast and 25°C to 39°C in the mountains.

Humidity levels will increase over coastal and internal areas through the night and early morning hours. Humidity levels could reach a high 80 per cent in the interior and 35 per cent in the mountains, according to the centre.

Waves will be slight to moderate the Arabian Gulf and Oman sea.

Similar weather patterns are forecast for Friday for much of the country.
