The weather in UAE is forecast to be partly cloudy in general, and cloudy at times over some of the coastal areas and island in UAE.

According to a tweet by NCM (National Center of Meteorology) in UAE, Northwesterly winds, freshening at times will be causing the blowing of dust over the internal areas.
It was last week (April 25) that the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) had forecast weather in the UAE over the coming five days to be fair to partly cloudy in general and dusty at time.
NCM had also called on drivers and pedestrians to take all necessary precautions when on roads due to blowing dust and sand causing poor horizontal visibility.
The center had issued a statement noting poor visibility of less than 2,000 metres at times as a result of fresh northwesterly winds, adding that wind speeds could reach up to 45 km/hr.
