UAE Ministry Advises to "Avoid Valleys and Beaches" Today

The UAE’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) warned motorists of 'fluctuations in weather conditions” as heavy to moderate rains hit four emirates on Wednesday. 

Motorists were advised to avoid driving unless necessary as well as "valleys and places where water flows.”

The unstable weather will continue tomorrow, with a “significant decrease” in temperatures. Friday and Saturday will also see some rainfall over coastal, Northern and Eastern areas.

Heavy to moderate rains have hit parts of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai, Sharjah’s Al Dhaid and Khor Fakkan and Fujairah this morning, according to the NCM.

In Ras Al Khaimah, patrols have been dispatched to monitor roads and prevent motorists from driving near valleys, the authorities said on Wednesday.

Reiterating the UAE Government's warning, the emirate's emergency and crisis management team had stressed that now is not the time to head to the sea and wadis (valleys).
