on .

The sunshine is here to stay for Thursday, resulting in climbing temperatures throughout the day - recovering from a rainy evening in Al Ain.

Abu Dhabi and Dubai could reach top temperatures in the mid-forties, while the mountain regions will be cooler at a high of 38°C.

But brief cloudy spells and fresh south and north-easterly winds will give brief respite from the scorching heat.

The Arabian Gulf and Sea of Oman will be calm to moderate.
