Dust-laden winds blew across Dubai this afternoon, lowering down the temperature and reducing visibility. Just a few weeks ago, we had experienced a sandtorm, which I wrote about here. Fortunately, weathermen describe this storm as “a short and weak spell”.
The picture above shows Shaikh Zayed Road, the longest road in the United Arab Emirates and home to Dubai’s skyscrapers, including the famous Burj Dubai. With reduced visibility, you can barely see the buildings just after that toll gate.
The weathermen predicted moderate winds to continue at the speed of 12-24 kilometers per hour, blowing up sand and dust, for the next 24 hours.
So today we have gray, cloudless skies with lots of dust and sand. Wonder how the skies elsewhere look like today? Well, simply click on the image below.
