Saturday was hot and dry in Sharjah, with the internal areas recording a maximum temperature of 47°C and the coastal areas 46°C. Humidity was less in Sharjah during the morning session. Later in the afternoon, with the arrival of north-westerly wind, there was some respite from the heat
Hot weather due to low humidity and dry wind in the morning continues to reign over the region as the summer is gearing up to hit its peak for the year.
The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) forecast generally hot and hazy weather for the next couple of days, especially in the western areas. The haze, which is lowering visibility in broad daylight, has become a yearlong phenomenon, said meteorologists.
Some clouds are expected to develop over the eastern areas by the afternoon on Sunday. There will be light to moderate winds, freshening at times, causing dust and sand to blow over some internal areas. Sea will be slight to moderate, it said.
Winds will be south-easterly and easterly, becoming north-westerly by afternoon and easterly to south-easterly by night on Sunday and Monday, NCMS said. The wind from the desert, which accumulates and suspends dust in the air, has the support of other air pollutants like industrial and vehicle emissions, to keep the dust in the air and cause poor visibility, a Met office source in Sharjah said. – The Gulf Today
