Abu Dhabi: Blowing dust or sand may reduce visibility on Saturday, weathermen in the UAE warned.


In issuing a yellow alert, the National Center for Meteorology (NCM) urged road users and motorists to be cautious as visibility may drop, expecially in exposed areas of the country, with light to moderate winds expected.

The NCM alert is up on in most of the country’s central and southern regions on Saturday.

The rest of the day will be partly cloudy and hazy at times over some areas, the weathermen said.

The amount of clouds is also expected to increase, and convective clouds by afternoon may be seen over the country’s eastern regios.

The NCM also said the sea will be moderate in the Arabian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.
