Sandstorms, rain, and falling temperatures are expected to hit the UAE Thursday, national news agency WAM reported.

The National Center for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) warned motorists to take extra care due to the reduced visibility caused by dust storms kicked up by unusually windy conditions over night.

Rain is also expected along the west coast of the country, along with a decrease in temperatures. It also warned seafarers of rough conditions across the Arabian Gulf overnight.

In April 2015 thick dust clouds filled the air across big parts of the UAE, causing hazardous driving conditions, and severe disruption to air traffic at Dubai’s airports.
