Dubai: Temperatures may have started to wane at times, but there’s no respite from the blazing summer heat yet for UAE residents.

Dust and haze will continue to hit some parts of the country today until Tuesday, although fog and mist formations are already starting to show, according to the official weather bulletin.

While there’s no big transition to more pleasant conditions yet, forecasters at the National Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS), however, are beginning to see some fog and mist formations over some areas.

Before 6am on Sunday, mist formations were reported over the outskirts, particularly in Liwa and Swiehan in Abu Dhabi, while the lowest temperature recorded over the country was 23.4 degrees Celsius at 6.45am in Al Heben Mountain.

There will be plenty of clouds over some eastern parts of the country, with light to moderate winds expected to cause blowing dust or haze over some exposed areas, according to NCMS.

“[Today’s weather will be] hot in general, very hot at times over some internal areas, partly cloudy and hazy at times,” the weather bureau said.
