The National Centre of Meteorology has predicted a large mass of cloud approaching the UAE coast from the direction of Kuwait on Tuesday. The cloud is expected to build in northern and eastern areas by afternoon today and will gradually extend to some coastal and internal areas, possibly reaching Abu Dhabi.
