The summer season which started in the UAE about two weeks ago is gradually peaking.
According to reports from the UAE National Center for Metrology, the highest temperature recorded in the country on Sunday was 51º Celcius in Mezaira at 12:45pm.
Many were staying home in the cool as a heatwave hit the country with temperatures touching 50°C.
In some areas, the mercury was even seen topping 51°C.
Authorities have urged residents to take precautions in the heat and drink lots of water to remain hydrated.
The lowest temperature recorded over the UAE on Sunday was 24.3º Celcius around 05:45am in Raknah.
Meanwhile, Wadi Esfai in Rask Al Khaimah recorded moderate rain, whereas Wadi Shees in Sharjah experienced light rain.
A chance of convective clouds formation may be associated with rainfall and fresh to strong winds at times with speed reaching 45 km/hr, causing blowing dust and sand, leading to poor horizontal visibility at times over some Eastern areas of the country.
On Saturday, rain lashed separate areas of the country and fog blanketed these areas. The rain started at 8am, as a result of the extension of a shallow air depression, accompanied by a weak air depression in the upper atmosphere, which resulted in instability of the weather conditions.
The weather from Monday through Thursday is expected to be partly cloudy to cloudy sometimes with a chance of light rain on the sea and the western islands in the morning.
The rain was experienced in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Fuiajrah, and some areas of Sharjah.
The Ministry underscored the UAE's keenness to deepen cooperation with the Republic of Sudan in all fields and strengthen ties between the two countries and peoples.
Another blast later in the day near the money exchange market in Jalalabad injured six people, according to police in Nangahar province.
