A weather alert warned of rough seas off the UAE’s west coast yes­ter­day, fol­lowed by thun­der­storms start­ing early to­mor­row.

Tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to drop across the coun­try to­mor­row and Thurs­day, with rain­fall vary­ing in in­ten­sity in dif­fer­ent emi­rates, the Na­tional Cen­tre of Me­te­o­rol­ogy said.

Wind speeds could reach 70 kilo­me­tres per hour with blus­tery conditions caus­ing swirling dust and sand to re­duce vis­i­bil­ity, the cen­tre said.

The un­sta­ble weather will per­sist un­til Thurs­day, with rain­fall con­tin­u­ing in eastern ar­eas and cloudy conditions in­land.

Tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to drop with highs of 26°C and lows rang­ing be­tween 14°C and 16°C fore­cast for Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah, ac­cord­ing to BBC Weather.

The coun­try is re­cov­er­ing from flood­ing caused by tor­ren­tial rain this month that brought traf­fic to a stand­still and re­sulted in the can­cel­la­tion of af­ter-school ac­tiv­i­ties and a dis­rup­tion of flights.
