UAE weather alert: Beware of rough seas, blowing dust
Today's weather will be dusty and partly cloudy in general with a drop in temperatures.
Fresh winds, blowing dust and poor visibility have been forecasted at some parts of the country, the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCM) said on Saturday.
The NCM said horizontal visibility could reduce to less than 1,000 metres at times, as fresh winds are likely to kick up dust over some parts of the UAE.
Forecasters have also advised sea-goers in Arabian Gulf to be cautious of fresh to strong winds.
In a statement, NCM said that strong winds with a speed of over 40kmph, are expected along with a wave height reaching up to six feet in the offshore areas of the Oman Sea from 9am until 6pm, Saturday.

The weather bureau added that the relative humidity will increase during the night and in the early morning tomorrow over the coastal and internal areas.
There will be light to moderate winds, freshening at times, during daytime causing blowing dust and suspended sand reducing the horizontal visibility.
The sea will be rough in the Arabian Gulf and moderate to rough at times in Oman Sea.
