Met warns of unstable weather, mercury dips in UAE

The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has issued an alert about unstable weather conditions.

In a tweet on Saturday, the Met authority warned of strong winds and very rough seas that could cause wave heights of up to 12 feet.

Moreover, blowing dust or sand will reduce horizontal visibility on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, blowing dust reduced visibility to less than 2,000 metres on affected highways.

Temperatures dropped across the country on Saturday, with a further drop expected today. The lowest temperature recorded in the country on Saturday was 7°C at Jabal Jais.

Today, the weather will be fair to partly cloudy in general. However, fresh winds in general will be strong at times, especially over the sea. They will cause blowing dust/sand over the exposed areas and may reduce the horizontal visibility at times.

“Sea will be rough to very rough in Arabian Gulf and Oman Sea,” the NCMS warned.

Similar weather conditions have been forecast for tomorrow. The relative humidity will increase by night and early morning over some internal areas, especially western areas, with some mist.
