Strong winds blowing dust and sand threaten horizontal visibility, reducing it to less than 2000m on the roads; motorists must exercise caution.

Abu Dhabi police are urging drivers to stay alert and avoid using mobile phones at this time. 

Sporadic winds and dust is expected in parts of the country until 4 p.m. on Saturday. 

Convective clouds are forming over Al Dhafra region that may lead to some light showers. 

Residents should be extra careful when planning outdoor activities.
