Employees of federal government entities in the UAE have been allowed to work remotely on Tuesday, April 16, due to adverse weather conditions.

The decision, which the UAE Cabinet announced, does not apply to jobs that require on-site presence.

According to the National Centre of Meteorology, the weather is set to be highly unstable until Wednesday.

In Abu Dhabi, distance learning has been activated for all schools, while government entities will also be working remotely.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, gave the directives. Tuesday will be a remote working day for employees of all Dubai government entities.

Sheikh Hamdan also directed private schools to conduct remote learning.

Until Tuesday afternoon, the weather will be unstable, beginning over the Western areas and moving towards Abu Dhabi and the Northern and Eastern areas.

These locations are likely to experience larger amounts of convective clouds. Rainfall of varying intensities will be accompanied by lightning, thunder, and possibly hail.

Another such spell will begin from the Western areas between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning in scattered areas of the country.
