Rain is forecast for the UAE today, especially over eastern and southern areas, with lower temperatures as autumn conditions kick in.

Winds will be moderate and fresh to strong at times, causing dust and sand to blow about and reducing visibility on the roads.

Conditions at sea will be moderate becoming rough in the Arabian Gulf, and rough to very rough in the Sea of Oman.

UAE authorities are at maximum readiness after Cyclone Shaheen made landfall in Oman on Sunday and was due to move over the Emirates on Monday.

Forecasters expected the cyclone to weaken by Monday evening.
