Good bye, pleasant, chilly evenings, and hello, light clothes!
It looks like the winter season has well and truly ended as the mercury has crossed the 40-degree-Celsius-mark multiple times already.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) on Saturday reported that the highest temperature recorded in the UAE was 42°C. It was recorded in Dubai’s Saih Al Salem area around 2pm.
