The temperature is expected to decrease further on Thursday, according to the NCM’s five-day weather forecast.

Heavy rains, thunderstorms and hail fell on the UAE from October 14 till November 10. Valleys and streets were flooded, while waterfalls gushed off the mountains as it rained for nearly a month in different parts of the country. Last weekend was the first dry one in four weeks.

Though the UAE is in the middle of its rainy season, an NCM expert told Khaleej Times that the showers have been heavier than usual.
