UAE weather bureau warns of poor visibility due to dusty conditions

ARN News

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has urged the public to be extra cautious as blowing dust could reduce visibility in different parts of the emirate.

Speaking to ARN News, the forecaster at NCM said the unstable weather condition would continue until 7:00 pm on Monday, with chances of rain over the next two days in some parts.

He added that strong winds with speeds of 55km/hr will pick up dust and sand reducing visibility to less than 500 metres in some areas.

Authorities have also reminded drivers to exercise caution on the roads and avoid speeding.

Taking to their official Twitter handle, the Abu Dhabi Police urged motorists to avoid using phones to take videos.
