Dubai: After a weekend battered by gale force winds, residents can breathe easy with less winds but still cold climate.

The weather will be cool and calm over the rest of the week with no rain forecast.

Light and breezy weather will continue over the next four days with temperatures wavering between 12C and 19C maximum in the daytime.

The rest of the week will continue to chill residents with cold temperatures, according to a forecaster at the Dubai Meteorological Office.

“It will be a little hazy in the afternoons but it will stay cool and fine,” he said.

Sunday will be slightly hazy again and breezy in the afternoon. The maximum temperature will be 13C on Sunday in the daytime and will only peak to 19C later on in the week.

“Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be fine but cold in the morning,” he said. The lowest temperature will be 12C on Wednesday morning.

“Most of the week will remain quite cold,” he added.

High winds experienced over the weekend which knocked trees down and limited visibility on some main roads have died down and generally no strong winds or shamals are expected in the coming few days.

Despite sandy tracks people were seen jogging at Safa Park.
