What sort of weather can we look forward to for the rest of the week?
According to the NCM, Tuesday and Wednesday are also looking to be cloudy, dusty, and windy, with chance of light rainfall thanks to the scattered convective clouds on Tuesday.
Authorities also expect partly cloudy conditions for the next four days, with humidity and mist rolling in from Wednesday to Friday.
What’s the coldest temperature that the UAE has ever experienced?
The coldest temperature ever recorded in the UAE was just -2ºC, in that January last year — and perhaps most surprisingly, it was observed by meteorological equipment based in Raknah, Al Ain — which is not halfway up a mountain, this is a low-lying area.
That was the first time since records began, that temperatures in the UAE have breached the zero degrees barrier.
