Heavy rains, storms to continue across the UAE

Some schools also closed on Monday due to the heavy rains

Heavy rains and thunderstorms will continue across the UAE on Monday, following a torrential downpour on Sunday night.

Motorists have been urged to be cautious when driving on the roads due to reduced visibility and the possibility of flooding.

Some schools in Dubai and the northern emirates also sent children back home due to the heavy downpour early in the morning.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) affirmed that the weather will remain cloudy throughout the day with rainfall of different intensities over scattered areas accompanied with thunder and lightning, especially in the northern and coastal areas.

“Winds will freshen, causing blowing dust and sand at times with significant fall of temperatures,” the NCM said in its daily bulletin.

Temperatures will range from a low of 11 degrees in the mountains to a high of 27 degrees in the internal areas on Monday.

“The unstable condition is still affecting due to the extension of surface low pressure over most northern and eastern areas, accompanied with an upper air trough. The western areas affected by an extension of high pressure,” it explained.

The clouds are forecast to clear up by the evening and night, the NCM added.

However, seas will remain rough in the Arabian Sea and the Oman Sea.

On Tuesday, the weather will remain partly cloudy, especially over the northern and eastern areas with a chance of rainfall with slight fall of temperatures.

Northwesterly winds, with speeds of 20 – 35km/hr, and reaching up to 45km/hr over the sea, will cause blowing dust at times over the exposed areas, the NCM said.

Along with the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have also been witnessing similar weather conditions.

On Sunday, an official confirmed that the kingdom will continue seeing heavy downpours until Tuesday.
