First, the good news: after hitting 40 degrees last week, temperatures in Dubai are set to drop this week with lows of 17 degrees.
Sadly, those lower temperatures will also include high winds and sand storms over the next few days.
The National Centre of Meteorology is blaming a strong north-westerly wind of up to 65km. It will be pretty rough out at sea, with waves of up to three metres.

The unsettled weather could last until the weekend.
Tomorrow’s forecast is “dusty and partly cloudy, with a significant decrease in temperatures.”
“The sea will be very rough in the Arabian Gulf and moderate to rough in Oman Sea.”
The UAE was hit by a heat wave last week, with temperatures unseasonably warm at over 40 degrees.
