After highs of 34 degrees earlier in the week, todays temperatures are expected to peak at 27 degrees in Dubai and 28 in Abu Dhabi.
But there’s not just rain ahead. Moderate to fresh winds will pick up throughout the day causing blowing dust and more potential sandstorms across exposed areas of the UAE. It’s likely to be another day of poor visibility ,so motorists are advised to take care when driving across the emirates.
Looking ahead to the weekend, strong winds are expected until at least Saturday, bringing with it the chance of further sandstorms across Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
