The winds will be moderate to strong, kicking up dust and dirt in some areas and may lead to low visibility with sea turbulence.

Convective cloud formations are expected to enter the UAE from the west, from Saudi Arabia. The clouds are expected to pass over the regions of Tarif and Shella.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the NCMS warned seafarers in the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman to exercise extra caution as severe disturbances were expected at sea.

The centre also called on motorists to be cautious on the roads as low visibility is expected and asked people to refrain from venturing into wadis which are prone to flash flooding.

It also predicted unstable weather on Thursday and Friday. The centre called on people, especially those living in areas that are exposed to heavy rain and strong winds, to be cautious.
