Abu Dhabi recorded 37.9 degree Celsius at the airport, near the interior, but along the Capital's corniche temperatures only reached 32.9 degree Celsius. A National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology spokesman said Friday's highest temperature was 45.2 degree Celsius in the Hamim area, in the south of the country — more than twice the temperature atop the country's highest mountain Jebel Jais, which racked up just 20.3 degree Celsius. The north of the country, in Zafar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai's Al Minhad were all plagued with fog on Friday morning too. Residents should brace themselves for rising temperatures. In the next two months, the mercury would hit up to 50 degree Celsius.
