Temperatures touch 1.4 degrees in the UAE as cloudy conditions continue

Strong winds are expected to cause blowing dust, leading to reduced visibility

Temperatures will drop to touch lows of up to 1 degree celsius in the mountains of the UAE, according to the official weather forecast on Monday.

The temperature on Monday morning dropped to 1.4 degrees in the Jais mountain in Ras Al Khaimah, the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said on Twitter, following heavy rains on Sunday.

The NCM also recorded freezing rain on the Jebel Jais mountain on Sunday.

Temperatures will vary between 10 – 20 degrees celsius in the coastal areas, between 7 – 21 degrees in the internal areas and 1 -10 degrees in the mountains.

The NCM also predicted that the weather will remain cloudy on Monday, especially in the east and north.

Strong winds will cause blowing dust and reduce the visibility at times in the UAE, the NCM said.

The sea will be very rough in the Arabian Gulf and moderate, becoming rough at times with clouds in Oman Sea, it added.

Temperatures in the country will increase slightly and gradually from Tuesday, with moderate wind speeds, the NCM said.

The UAE is also expected to see increased humidity, which in turn will lead to fog or mist formation.
