RIYADH: Educational institutions in Riyadh will be suspended on Wednesday due to weather forecasts predicting an ongoing dust storm will continue. 

Head of the General Directorate of Education in Riyadh, Hamad bin Nasser Al-Waheibi, ordered school classes to be canceled in the capital and its provinces.

Classes at the Al-Imam Mohammad bin Saud Islamic University will also be suspended Wednesday due to the weather.
The decisions are based on a report by the General Authority for Meteorology and Environment predicting that a current dust storm is expected to continue in Riyadh.
