No beach party this weekend... and be careful when driving

By Muna Ahmad

Slight drizzle in Dubai and light rainfall in the northern emirates have settled the dust in the air and brought to an end the windy weather that had enveloped the country for the past couple of days.

The National Center of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has asked the resident not to go into the sea till Saturday due to high waves and drop in visibility.
The met department has also alerted motorists to be extra careful, especially on highways due to low visibility and strong winds, as well as sands accumulated on the roads.
According to NCMS,  the country will be affected by south east to south winds. These winds are filled with dust and sands in the open and inside areas. It will cause low visibility, especially in the Western Region, and will also lead to rise in temperatures.
The met office also expects the weather to be partially cloudy in some parts of the country, with possibilities of rains.
