Abu Dhabi: The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has reported that temperatures in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have reached a scorching 50 degrees Celsius for the first time this year.
The highest temperature recorded in the country was 50.1 degrees Celsius in Bada Dafas in the Al Dhafra region of Abu Dhabi. This record-breaking temperature was reached on July 15 and July 16, marking two consecutive days of extreme heat.
The NCM explains that July is known for its high temperatures, as the region and the country are affected by thermal lows, with the most significant being the monsoon low pressure in India. These factors contribute to the sweltering conditions experienced in the UAE.
