The UAE's National Center of Meteorology on Wednesday issued a weather alert for residents, warning them of rough sea, high waves and fresh winds.

"The sea is rough due to the convective cloud formation associated with fresh winds reaching 45kmph at times, and wave height may reach 7 feet offshore," the NCM said in a bulletin.

The warning is applicable from 11.45am today until 6pm.

The NCM also shared a map of the UAE, with affected areas highlighted in red and yellow.
