Temperature smashes past 51°C as UAE heats up

The UAE has recorded a temperature over 51°C twice during the past three days as the country endures one of the hottest starts to summer ever.

The highest recorded temperature in the UAE was 51.8°C which was recorded on Sunday afternoon in the Sweihan area of Al Ain.

But The National Center of Meteorology NCM said it was ‘premature’ to call it a record-breaking start to the summer.

But there is some good news for those melting in the UAE. Humidity is expected to drop in the second half of June. And we’re also set for some fog and cloud over the next few days.

That said, the temperature is still expected to hit 49 degrees.

“Clouds develop at times over some areas with chances of formation of cumuliform clouds over eastern mountains. This makes it appear rainy at times during the afternoon. However, chances of formation of fog/mist are less likely to occur – especially in the second half of the month”, the NCM official added.
