Weather warning for UAE

High winds will drag up dust.

Weather forecasters are warning of poor visibility on the roads and high levels of dust in the air as the UAE is battered by winds travelling from Saudi Arabia.

The National Centre of Meterology and Seismology also said yesterday that some of the northern Emirates may experience rain on Saturday night and Sunday, and that seas will be rough.

A statment said people should "take precaution on the roads due to the expected bad horizontal visibility" and warned asthmatics to avoid exposure to the dusty air.
