Monday could see continuance of wet weather

On Sunday, residents in the UAE woke up to a wet day with rain and thunderstorms lashing various parts of the nation. The met department has said that today, there may be the chance of rainfall even though the sun may pop out of the clouds for a while.

On Sunday, there were reports of thundershowers in Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah while on Monday, the rainfall was of varying degrees in Al Hiyar, Emirates Road, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain.

The NCM said that the unstable weather conditions were attributable to a surface low of pressure that extended over the nation and the Arabian Peninsula, in addition to there being a presence of an upper air trough.

Conditions of visbility were down to as low as 1500 metres especially in the open areas that saw the dust swirling and huge clouds forming. It is expected that the northern and eastern parts of the UAE may witness cloudy conditions and may gradually turn hazy and partly cloudy. The mercury is anticipated to register a sharp decline.

Meanwhile, conditions in the Oman Sea and Arabian Gulf are predicted to be rough to very rough today while it may be rough on Tuesday.
