UAE weather: Clouds, low temperatures, strong wind and dust warnings
It looks like no sunshine just yet…
There’s no denying that since the heavy rain and storms over New Year’s Eve, the UAE’s January weather has been very unpredictable for the most part. It doesn’t look like that is set to change this weekend, with clouds, low temperatures and strong winds of up to 65km/h predicted.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has issued a dust warning across the UAE, with reduced visibility expected in some areas – so take note if you’re driving. Some eastern areas have been put under orange alert and told hazardous weather is expected, whilst the rest of the UAE is on yellow alert, and told to be on the lookout for potential visibility impairments.
