Temperatures in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are set to rise starting Sunday for two days due to the impact of Cyclone Phet, a Dubai-based English daily reported.

While the cyclone led to some rain in parts of the Gulf nation Friday evening, weather forecasters said no more rain was expected in the following days, according to Gulf News.

The maximum temperature may go up to 46 degrees in interior areas and 40 to 41 degrees in coastal areas Sunday, a duty forecaster at the National Center for Meteorology and Seismology ( NCMS) was quoted as saying.

"Day temperatures tend to rise gradually, with moderate winds in general, especially over the internal areas, causing blowing dust or sand over the open lands. The sea condition will be slight to moderate in general, and rough over the Oman sea," the forecaster said.

Humidity will also go up by Monday night, he added.

According to Gulf News, Phet killed 24 people and left four missing in Oman before barrelling towards Pakistan Saturday.

Due to the tropical cyclone, wet weather conditions prevailed in Oman and its adjoining areas in the UAE with low to medium clouds, the NCMS forecaster said.

Although Phet did not directly affect the UAE, it caused rough sea conditions on the eastern coast until Saturday, he said.
