Furthermore, police officials in Abu Dhabi have called for drivers to be careful on the road.

High winds on the coast could reach as high as 35kph, causing low visibility for drivers as dust and sand will be swept into the skies.

There is also a chance of rain on Saturday, July 9, particularly in eastern and southeastern areas, which could also spread to the coast.

Winds reach as high as 40kph, which could cause blowing dust and sand that will further reduce visibility.


Sunday will be slightly cooler, and there is also a chance of heavy showers as convective clouds from over the east and south likely to stretch over the coast.

The unsettled weather will persist into the beginning of next week, with Tuesday evening set to be quite humid.
