Motorists  should be cautious as low visibility from the dust and rain could impair their driving. Slippery roads could pose a challenge for drivers who are advised to stick to speed limits and reduce speed when necessary.

Temperatures in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi are expected to fall with highs hovering between 16 to 20 degree Celsius. It could plummet to as low as 11 degree Celsius in Ras Al Khaimah.
