UAE drivers are being urged to take extra caution after forecasters warned of reduced visibility due to strong winds and dusty conditions.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) said on Saturday visibility could be less than 2,000 meters on several roads in the Emirates.

Moderate winds are expected to reach speeds as high as 36kph along internal areas and 38kph over the coast, causing dusty conditions to exposed areas.

Temperatures are expected to rise across the country, peaking at 48°C inland, 45°C along the coast and 37°C in the mountains.

Humidity levels could reach as high as 70 per cent in the interior and 85 per cent in the coast, according to the centre.

Conditions in the Arabian Gulf and Oman Sea will be moderate.
