All schools in Dubai and the Northern Emirates closed on November 20

Due to impending storms all Dubai schools will be closed on Wednesday November 20.

The Ministry of Education issued an alert on Twitter stating that due to the “unstable weather” schools in Dubai and the Northern Emirates would be closed on Wednesday.

Rain, strong wind and thunder storms are set to hit the UAE in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The announcement came shortly after the Abu Dhabi government announced that schools in the capital would be closed for the same reasons.

Schools are expected to reopen on Thursday November 21.

Stay safe and dry everyone.
