The UAE weather department on Wednesday issued a rain and dust alert for residents in the country.

In a statement today, National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) warned of the poor visibility of less than 2,000 meters at times due to fresh winds with speed reaching up to 70 kmph at times in various coastal and inland areas of the country.

The alert is expected to last between 5am and 10am, the NCM said.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said the country will receive more rains accompanied by thunder and lightning this week.

Rains of “different intensities” have been forecast for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The NCM said temperatures will drop on Wednesday and Thursday across the country. Strong winds will blow up sand, causing “poor to very poor visibility”.

The centre also predicted “rough to very rough seas” till Thursday.

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, meanwhile, urged residents to follow instructions from the authorities concerned during the unstable weather “in order to preserve lives and properties”.

All motorists are advised to be extra careful on the road and report an emergency via various government hotlines.
