Video: Seasonal rains lash UAE
'On Monday, less and scattered rains are expected over in eastern parts of the UAE'
Heavy to moderate rains lashed several parts of the UAE on Sunday afternoon. The rains were expected during this season as the country transits from summer to winter, said a UAE weather expert.
The areas hit by the rains included Jumeirah, Lehbab and Jebel Ali in Dubai; Wadi Al Helo, Khor Fakkan and Dhaid in Sharjah; Ahfara West of Kalba and Wadi Maidaq in Fujairah; Maleha–Shawkah Rd and Al Manaie in Ras Al Khaimah; Emirates Road near Al Helo area in Ajman and Saa area in Al Ain city.
In Abu Dhabi, the areas of Al Samkha, Al Rahba, Al Bahia, Al Shahama, Al Falah, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Road witnessed light showers, while Al Rawdah, Al Sad, Sweihan and Khutm Al Shukla regions in Al Ain and Al Khazna witnessed moderate rains.
Dr Ahmed Habib from the UAE’s National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said: “These are seasonal rains. This is the period of transition from summer to winter and the country usually receives rains during this season.”
Scattered rains on Monday
“On Monday, less and scattered rains are expected over the mountains in eastern parts of the UAE. From Tuesday, the weather will become stable with chances of fog during early morning hours,” said Habib.
He predicted light to moderate southeasterly to northeasterly winds at times causing blowing dust, with a speed of 20-30km/hr, which could reach up to 40km/hr.
Beach-goers shouldn’t worry as the sea will be mostly calm over the coming days.
“The sea will be slight to moderate in the Arabian Gulf and in the Sea of Oman,” said the official.
