Beware of 10ft waves, very rough seas off UAE



Read our weather update before planning your weekend.

Cold windy mornings continue to give solace to residents across UAE. The minimum recorded temperature was 5.6 degree Celsius at Damtha in UAE.

On their website, the National Centre of Meteorology warned sea-goers of rough seas in the Arabian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman as a result of strong north-westerly winds.

In a statement, the met department said that waves are expected to be between 6-8 feet in the Arabian Gulf, peaking to 10 feet. In the Gulf of Oman, the wave height until 9.00 am on Saturday morning will be between 4-6 feet, peaking to 7 feet.

Moderate to fresh winds will blow over the land which can cause blowing of dust or sand. Fresh to strong winds could blow over the sea so residents venturing near sea need to be cautious.  

There could be an increase in the relative humidity by night and tomorrow early morning.  

The weather will continue to be partly cloudy and hazy over the weekend. Residents can enjoy their time outdoors and relish the UAE winter while it lasts for couple of weeks.

On Saturday, the amount of clouds will increase over some coastal and western areas. The relative humidity is limited to increase during night and early morning on Sunday.

Beware of rough sea in the Arabian Gulf.
