Strong winds and rough seas are predicted for Sunday and Monday, according to the National Centre for Meteorology.

North-westerly winds are expected to reach 45kph over the sea causing poor visibility to less than 2000 meters due to suspended and blowing dust.

Waves will reach heights of up to 12 feet offshore in the Arabian Gulf, and 7m in the Oman Sea.

The centre warned residents to be on the lookout and be on the alert if they undertake any maritime activities, as the sea will be rough to very rough in the Arabian Gulf and rough in the Oman Sea.

Weather conditions are expected to be partly cloudy in general and hazy at times, with a slight drop in temperatures.

Humidity is likely to increase during the night and Monday morning over some internal areas with a chance of mist and fog formation.

Abu Dhabi will be mostly sunny with temperatures ranging between 32°C and 19°C, while temperatures in Dubai will range between 34°C and 21°C.

Temperatures along the coast will range between 34°C and 19°C, and 29°C to19°C in the mountains.
