Ah, I remember it well.

I've definitely seen 54 on the car, in the shade, a bit inland.

Problem with your car is that it's a hunk of metal sat in the blazing sun. The official temperature above was taken using proper met equipment, a Stevenson screen sat 1 metre above the ground.

Whereabouts in Dubai do they have these? I’m presuming the airport/s?

Is the hottest temperature in Dubai the hottest that’s been recorded in the UAE?
