Residents in Abu Dhabi woke up to full throttled rain as Saturday morning saw a strong downpour. Traffic could also be affected in the wake of the heavy rains. There were also reports of dust clouds looming over the UAE.

The National Centre of meteorology had earlier declared the official end of the winter season in the UAE. The NCM said that there may lurk the possibility of strong winds and rough seas in the Arabian Gulf.

A weather alert advisory has also been issued to motorists in the UAE after the erratic weather conditions led to visibility dropping to below 1000 metres. Meanwhile, the oman Sea and Arabian sea are expected to witness rough conditions.
