The UAE’s winter season has started with moderate winds causing patches of dust, resulting in poor visibility in certain areas, according to the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS).

Monday will be partly cloudy, especially in the northern and eastern areas of the country as temperatures dip throughout the day. Those out on the water should be cautious of very rough seas as strong gusts of winds are expected over the Arabian Gulf. The weather services said that the Oman Sea will be rough.

Relative humidity will increase during the night and early morning over some internal areas, NCMS said.
