ABU DHABI // A warning to swimmers and boaters continues to be in effect by the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology on Monday.

Fresh to strong northwesterly winds, blowing along the coast at speeds between 25 to 35 kph and with gusts of up to 55 kph, are expected to cause rough to very rough conditions in the Arabian Gulf and rough waves in the Oman Sea through Tuesday morning.

Blowing dust and sand may also reduce visibility, especially in the open areas.

Monday’s highs are expected to reach between 26ºC and 31ºC along the coast, 31ºC to 36ºC in the interior and 19ºC to 24ºC in the mountains.

The fair to partly cloudy weather is forecast to continue until Wednesday, when increased humidity will bring a chance of early morning fog in the country’s interior.

Two men drowned off the coast of Ajman, civil defence said on Sunday, adding that three others had been rescued while swimming in a separate incident.

Dubai Police warned people not to visit beaches until Tuesday because of strong currents, saying that five people had been rescued from 11.30am to 12.30pm in separate incidents near Burj Al Arab Beach.
