The weather is expected to be a little cloudy in some areas over the weekend, with temperatures hitting as low as 13°C overnight in the mountains on Friday morning as the weather continues to cool.

The western part of the country is expected to attract the most cloud, which could lead to rainfall.

The strong coastal winds on Friday morning are expected to continue through Friday and on through the weekend, reaching 45 km/h off the coast, causing rough seas and poor visibility.

Abu Dhabi will mostly be sunny with temperatures reaching highs of 33°C, dropping to 23°C overnight, and humidity peaking at 65 per cent.

Dubai will also be, as usual, sunny, with temperatures ranging between 34°C and 25°C and humidity levels reaching 60 per cent. Temperatures along the coast will be around the same.

Humidity levels are likely to increase overnight meaning there is a chance of fog over some internal areas on Saturday morning.

The sea will be rough in the Arabian Gulf until Monday afternoon, with waves reaching seven or eight feet high offshore and moderate to rough in the Oman Sea.

The lowest temperature this weekend was 13°C recorded in Jebel Jais on Friday morning.
