Dubai: The fresh air, cold winds and scattered showers will reappear on Tuesday afternoon, and is expected to continue during the next three days. 

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said that the weather on Tuesday will be partly cloudy, especially in the coastal and eastern areas where rain is more likely to fall.

The temperature across the UAE will slightly drop, with minimum temperatures ranging from 17C-21C in coastal areas, 15-20C in internal areas and 9C-14C in mountain region. 

"The weather is expected to be partly cloudy in general, with different formations of clouds moving from central Saudi Arabia towards our region in the next few days," said the NCM.

By Wednesday, northwesterly-northeasterly winds will pick up over the coastal areas at a speed of 15-26km/h, which may at times reach 32km/h.

The NCM warned motorists to drive carefully as the strong winds will blow dust and sand across exposed areas, leading to poor visibility on the UAE’s roads.

The weather forecaster also urged residents not to visit wadis and dams, and not to venture out to sea due to rough waves in the Arabian Gulf that will see waves reach up 8-10ft high.

The weather until Friday will be relatively cloudy, with clouds moving in from the west. The intensity of cloud formation is expected to increase due to the low pressure over the surface and the upper air, which will be accompanied by some rainfall.  

However, the clouds will gradually decrease by Friday night.
