Flights on schedule; Dubai Police warn motorists to be very careful while driving due to reduced visibility
Thunderstorms lashed the UAE last night, capping a day of terrible weather – sand and dust storms making going outdoors impossible and reducing visibility for motorists.
While some international flights arriving and departing from Dubai International Airport were delayed, this flight schedule this morning seemed to be back on track according to the schedule on the airport’s website.
However, there seems to be no respite from the inclement weather, despite the haze of dust particles that seemed to have enveloped Dubai yesterday, lifting in the early morning today.
The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has forecast that the weather will be hazy to partly cloudy, and with a chance of rain.
It added that a northwesterly wind will blow over most areas causing dust to rise and reducing horizontal, especially in the western areas.
Relative humidity will increase during night and early morning.
The sea is forecast to be moderate, with a slight chance of night and early morning fog over some areas tomorrow.
Dubai Police warns motorists to drive with caution due to low visibility.
