It's really heating up in the UAE, with temperatures just surpassing 50 degrees Celsius in a part of the country on Saturday.

And the hot weather is expected to continue for the next few days.
Even along the coast, temperatures hit 43 degrees over the weekend, according to The National. Other internal areas of the country reached 49 degrees.
"Light to moderate winds in general, freshening at times during daytime, and may cause blowing dust and sand at times. The relative humidity will increase by night and early morning over some coastal and internal areas, with a chance of fog/mist formation. Sea will be moderate in the Arabian Gulf and moderate becoming rough at times in the Oman Sea," the NCMS said in an official forecast for the next few days.
