Dubai temperatures set to soar this weekend bringing foggy mornings and beach days

It might have been the coldest start to a UAE year on record, but the sun is starting to come back with temperatures set to reach 30°C this weekend across Dubai.

As well as the rising temperatures in Dubai, there’s set to be a rise in humidity which is likely to mean more foggy mornings.

A blanket of fog is expected to hit on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning. And temperatures are expected to rise through the week to hit a high at the weekend. You can check out the monthly weather predictions from the National Centre of Meteorology below.

And when the fog does roll in, keep an eye on Sheikh Hamdan’s Instagram account for some more stunning shots like this.

Pubs and bars closed and hotel and mall capacity reduced under new Covid rules

If you are heading out to enjoy the warm weather this weekend, there are some new rules in place across the city.

Dubai has unveiled a new range of rules to help stop the spread of Covid-19 including closing bars and pubs and limiting hotel and mall capacity.

  • 50% reduction in the capacity of indoor seated venues including cinemas,entertainment&sports venues
  • Malls to operate at 70% capacity
  • Hotels to operate at 70% capacity; new bookings should comply
  • The capacity of swimming pools and private beaches in hotels to be limited to 70%
  • Pubs/bars will be closed

The measures were set by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management and the new Covid rules come into effect from February 2 until February 28.

Alongside the new capacity measures, there will also be tougher fines and penalties for anyone caught breaking the rules.

And the public is encouraged to report any ‘violations by individuals or entities through Dubai Police’s Call Centre 901 or Police Eye service through Dubai Police App.’

The measures have been taken as ‘daily reports have shown a marked increase in the number of violations of precautionary measures.’
