Dubai saw a short spell of rainfall on Tuesday evening, in line with predictions that the country would see rainfall and hailstorm over three days.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology had yesterday warned of unstable weather conditions in the country, with chances of rain and hailstorms across the country.

The wind speed will be moderate to fresh, becoming strong at times, blowing dust and sand to reduce the horizontal visibility over some areas. Sea will be rough to very rough over the Arabian Gulf and Sea of Oman, especially with the presence of clouds, the NCMS statement said.

Reduced visibility over interiors and open areas will be followed by a significant fall in temperature, the statement added.

The weather bureau has advised people to stay away from wadis and also to take extra caution in case of thunder, hailstorms and strong winds.
