With summer temperatures topping 40 degrees Celsius these days, a midday sun walk is no longer a convenient option, even if your station is just a few blocks away. Temperatures in the UAE approached 50 degrees on Saturday.

The UAE’s National Center of Meteorology (NCM) recorded a temperature of 49.3 degrees Celsius in the Hamim area of ​​Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra district at 3.15pm on Saturday. It was the hottest temperature on record for the country so far this year.

Mezaira, also in Abu Dhabi, also recorded a sweltering 49.2 degrees Celsius at 4pm, according to NCM readings. In Dubai, the hottest temperature of the day was 47.6 degrees Celsius in Maqam.

While 49.3C is certainly hot, it’s not the highest recorded summer temperature in the country. Sometime in 2021, temperatures will top 51C twice in three days.

“The average temperature in the UAE is projected to rise between 2.21 degrees Celsius and 2.38 degrees Celsius by 2050 and between 3.64 and 3.91 degrees Celsius by 2100,” said Dr Sreejith Balasubramanian, an associate professor at Middlesex University in Dubai, citing data from the UAE. Ministry of Climate Change and Environment.

However, the increase was not entirely unexpected considering that the 10 warmest years on record all occurred in the period after 2010. “Temperatures in the UAE have also risen sharply since 1990, with more intense summer warming,” He told the Khalij Times in a recent report.
