We have officially reached peak summer, people…

Ok, so there’s no denying that it’s both hot and sticky outside right now. August is traditionally the warmest month of the year and it is most definitely in full swing.

Having said that, we were still shocked to hear that humidity levels hit a staggering 100 per cent on Tuesday as was revealed by the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology in Abu Dhabi.

Gulf News reported that not one, but two areas recorded the sweltering temperature – Margham in the emirate of Dubai and Ashaab in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Things haven’t fared much better in the rest of the country with the NCM urging motorists to take care while driving in the early hours of the morning due to misty and foggy conditions (because of all the moisture in the air) hitting both Dubai and Al Ain.

The weather will continue to remain hot (surprise, surprise) throughout the rest of the work week with highs expected to hit a maximum of 43-degrees celsius in coastal areas upwards of 46-degrees inland.

Sounds like a good excuse to spend the week indoors.
