Dubai: Night-time temperatures will dip to 9C on Tuesday night with Sharjah recording the lowest and Abu Dhabi slightly higher at 12C, according to the Dubai met office.

A marine warning has gone out and will be valid until this morning, advising boats not to venture out to sea. This is because the winds are blowing rough offshore at 50 km/h or 27 knots, making the sea very choppy. Inland, the winds are mild at 28 km/h or 15 knots.

A high pressure system from Iran is blowing north-easterly winds across the emirates and driving down the minimum temperatures, according to Dr. S.K. Gupta, duty forecaster.

“There will be fine weather and sunny days ahead,” he said, as the clouds are dissipating towards the East Coast. There will be no rain for the next three days. On Monday, Dubai recorded 0.2 mm of rain and a “few spots of rain” in Sharjah.

“It will be partly cloudy with a chance of frosty conditions over the mountains and some Western areas”, according to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology in Abu Dhabi.
