Abu Dhabi — The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has advised sea-goers not to venture into the sea for at least the next three days, starting today, due to rough weather.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the centre predicted hazy weather in general, partly cloudy skies over some areas at times, along with moderate winds on Saturday morning.

“The fresh North-Westerly winds will start over the western areas by afternoon, extend gradually to the rest of the country, causing dust to blow and dust in suspension, reducing horizontal visibility specifically over the western region. This will be associated with drop in temperatures. There will be a significant drop in temperatures by Sunday over some areas.

The sea will be rough to very rough in the Arabian Gulf and moderate to rough at times in the Oman Sea. The North-Westerly winds will gradually move away by Monday afternoon.”

NCMS has warned against sea-surfing also during this period.
