SHARJAH: Residents of the UAE are gearing up for the longest fasting period in more than three decades.
A day’s fast will cover nearly 15 hours.
This comes amid a soaring temperature that tested the nerves of the people on the eve of the upcoming Holy Month of Ramadan.
The scorching sun was unbearable for many who were out in the open throughout Tuesday. Many commuters in Dubai reported that their thermometer showed an increasing temperature of 50˚C.
Officials at the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) informed The Gulf Today that the weather was indeed hot and would remain so on Wednesday too.
“Today (Wednesday) will be again hot day throughout the daytime, while partial clouds and hazy weather will prevail in the evening. Moderate fresh winds will bring relief in the afternoon, while dust will engulf the horizon over the internal areas,” he said.
