With the winter season settling in, on Thursday morning, NCMS recorded the lowest temperature of 5.6 degrees Celsius in the Jais mountain area in Abu Dhabi.

Partly cloudy weather will prevail in the country, particularly in the northern and western islands, with scattered rain, the NCMS forecast.

Moderate south-westerly wind will blow dust and sand over internal and open land areas and reduce the horizontal visibility level over these areas.

There are more possibilities of rain during the night on Friday, while Saturday is expected to experience rain during the day in Northern Emirates, the NCMS said. Though the sea conditions on Friday will be moderate, sometimes it would turn rough. It will remain same on Saturday, the NCMS said.

Meanwhile, the NCMS cautioned people from venturing out to the sea due to its slightly rough conditions on Friday and Saturday.

The met department also urged motorists to take maximum precaution while driving due to expected rain in some parts of the country that will make roads slippery.

The weather on Thursday remained partly cloudy in and around the capital with moderate sea conditions, the NCMS said.

The maximum temperature on Friday will be between 22-28 degrees Celsius and minimum 15-17, while the maximum humidity level in the internal parts of the country will be 80-95 per cent and minimum 40-60 per cent.
