When did you go?? Summers are ridiculously hot, but the winters are lovely and cool! That's why the Desert Classic is played at this time of year

Weather to remain chilly, windy across the UAE

The national weather bureau has warned people to stay away from boating and fishing trips

It will continue to be windy across the emirates Monday with the north-westerly winds even stronger over the sea, said the forecasters.

The sea will be very rough with six to 10 feet high waves. The national weather bureau has warned people to stay away from boating and fishing trips, saying it could be dangerous for small vessels.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS), the winds could also blow dust and sands in the open land areas. It would, however, not affect horizontal visibility much.

The weather will be partly cloudy to fair today. Relative humidity is likely to increase over some internal and coastal areas at night and early in the morning.

Temperatures on Monday are expected to remain between cold on the coast, fluctuating between 11 to 20 degree Celsius. Internal and mountainous areas will see very chilly nights of between 2c to 8c. No major change in the weather pattern is expected for the next 10 days.
