UAE residents are experiencing an overcast day as rains fall over multiple emirates. Videos circulating on social media show heavy rains falling in Sharjah and Dubai.

In one video taken from a car, a flock of birds can be seen making themselves comfortable on a stretch of grass by the side of a road in Sharjah. Many different species of birds migrate to the UAE during this season, when rains are more abundant and the temperatures drop.

Other videos show vehicles standing or going down rain-slick roads under grey, cloudy skies.
