Dubai: Moderate winds kicked up dust in exposed areas on Sunday night while low clouds associated with rain formed over the eastern part of the country.
Southerly to south-easterly winds blew at speeds of between 20km/h and 28km/h, and reached 36km/h at times especially northwards and over the sea, caused dusty conditions at times in Dubai and other exposed internal areas on Sunday night, according to the weather bulleting of the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS).
The skies were partly cloudy while the eastern part of the country such as Fujairah had clouds that became convective by afternoon. Convective clouds are those associated with rainfall caused by convection or the unequal heating of the earth’s surface.
Weathermen cautioned the public from heading out to sea as the Arabian Gulf Sea may become rough by late night Sunday and the Oman Sea will be rough in general with wave heights reaching 5 to 8ft offshore.
NCMS expects the same weather conditions to prevail on Monday.
