Heading outdoors? Weather conditions in the UAE on Friday are expected to be hazy and partly cloudy at times, said the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM). However, some parts of the country will see partly cloudy to cloudy weather with a chance of rainfall.

According to the (NCM) the weather will be “generally clear to partly cloudy at times and low clouds will appear over western and eastern areas of the country."

However, be careful if you have dust allergies and are heading outdoors, as the NCM warned: “Light to moderate winds at times, at a speed of 15– 25, reaching 35 km/hr, will cause blowing dust and sand.”
