Dust storm sweeps across Dubai
Eye drops at the ready…
Dubai residents woke up to murky skies this morning as a dust storm hit the UAE.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said winds of up to 55km/h would whip up dust and sand over most internal and coastal areas throughout Thursday.
It warned of poor visibility less than 2000 metres at times.

It’s going to be a hot one, too – maximum temperatures are expected to reach 36-43C in coastal areas and 40-44C in internal areas, with humidity up to 85 per cent in coastal areas and 80 per cent in internal areas.
Heat, humidity, and dust? What a lovely combination. Here are some pics of today’s storm:
