The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) has warned of rough sea and high waves in the Arabian Gulf. Waves up to 6 ft high are also expected to hit offshore of the UAE. Beachgoers are advised to be cautious while swimming in the various beaches in the region.

The overall weather in the country will be fair with an increase in the number of clouds over some areas.

Moderate winds will blow in general, freshening at times especially over the sea and causing blowing dust/sand over some exposed areas.

"The relative humidity will increase by night and early morning over some coastal and western internal areas, may fog/mist form," NCM added.
