Rain of varying intensity fell on separate areas across the UAE on Tuesday as a result of the country being affected by a shallow air depression from the east, accompanied by an extension of an air depression in the upper layers of the atmosphere. Moderate rain started to fall at 2:30pm on Al Foah in Al Ain City, Abu Dhabi, while light to moderate rain fell on Al Hili, Ghashaba, Masaken and other areas.

The lowest temperature of 22.8 degrees Celsius was registered in Jebel Al Heben in Fujairah at 6:15am local time. The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) called on the public to exercise extreme caution while driving vehicles during the rainfall and lack of horizontal visibility due to the rain and sand-stirring winds.

It also called on them to stay away from places with gathered water and flooded valleys. Wednesday’s weather is expected to be clear in general with some low clouds appearing in the east in the morning but would turn to humid at night and Thursday morning on some coastal areas, the NCM said.
