Folks, get your snow gear out, it's getting cold in the UAE!
For the first time this winter season, the temperature has dipped below zero degrees Celsius.
According to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the temperature dipped to "2°C below zero" at 5.15am on Saturday. The sub-zero temperature was recorded in Al Ain's Raknah.
