Forecaster Amna Yasin estimated about 5mm of rain had fallen across the emirates yesterday but there were no heavy showers.

“There was nothing measurable in Dubai but there has been light rain across the UAE according to the radar,” she said.

Yasin said the rain would clear this morning since the breeze had picked up speed last night with an oncoming shamal.

Moderate to fresh winds, reaching up to 20 knots off shore, were predicted for today.

The shamal winds were expected to weaken on Tuesday night and through Wednesday before strengthening again on Thursday.

Yasin said rain was not predicted for the remainder of the week but temperatures were expected to gradually drop with a minimum of 14 degrees Celsius expected for Wednesday.
