United Arab Emirates (UAE) was hit by a severe sandstorm on March 10 and 11, 2015.

Rainfall is also expected today and tomorrow across parts of the UAE, with the wet weather blowing in fresh winds that will raise dust and sand over open areas and reduce visibility, Emirates247 writes.

National weather bureau warned that visibility will be further dampened by the onset of early morning and late night fog, with Wednesday being particularly significant in the western internal areas of the UAE. They issued a warning for drivers to proceed with caution owing to the drop in visibility due to fog and rain, along with fishermen and surfers being warned of rough seas over the next 48 hours, especially the Arabian Gulf and the Oman Sea.

The National Center for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has said that the change in weather will also bring about a noticeable drop in the temperatures, blowing in the chill after last week's spike in temperatures.
