Starting Sunday, and extending in to the new week, the UAE is bracing for a notable weather change, forecast the National Center of Meteorology (NCM).

A surface low-pressure system, combined with an upper air depression, will influence weather patterns, along with a westerly trough bringing intermittent cloud cover along with rain showers.

Winds are predicted to shift from Southeasterly to Northwesterly, ranging from light to moderate, with occasional fresh gusts. Blowing dust and sand may reduce visibility, particularly in areas with cloud cover.

Sea conditions
