There was moderate to heavy rain in most parts of the UAEand relatively cooler weather conditions are set to remain unchanged till Sunday, an official from the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said.
"There were fresh and cool north-westerly winds from Arabian Gulf. There was easterly flow too. Their convergence led to formation of convective clouds resulting in heavy rain over areas in Dubai and Sharjah," he said.
The weatherman said rainfall was received in various parts from 1.30pm till 4.30pm.
"Sharjah received very good amount of rain. The Sharjah International Airport recorded 14mm of rain. The Ajman and Dubai coasts also received rains," he said. "Heavy rains were recorded in Al Madam and Nazwa areas in Sharjah and Margham and Lehbab in Dubai."
There was a dip in temperature seen across the country and it is likely to continue for next two days with rise of two to three degrees. Maximum temperature recorded on Friday was in Dubai at 45.5 degrees and minimum was 23 degrees in Ras Al Khaimah. The formation of rain clouds will weaken over next two days as atmosphere will be warmer.
"We expect the weather conditions to remain same today but cloud formations and movements will be weaker than Friday. There might be cloud formations in the east and mild rain. The north-westerly winds will see gradual dip in speed."
The official noted there was chance of mist or fog on Sunday morning. "There will be high humidity by night. There could be mist or fog as wind will be light by night and bring some humidity from the sea. By night as temperature dips there could be mist or fog formation over the northern coast," he said.
He added there was 'weak' chance of rain in Abu Dhabi as most clouds were formed in east and north of the country.
