Rain in UAE today as temperatures dip

Weather bureau forecasts rise in humidity and morning mist

Some parts of UAE will see rain on Wednesday, according to official weather forecast by the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS).

Temperatures are also expected to dip and the skies will hold towering clouds especially over the Northern and Eastern areas.

However, humidity is expected to increase in internal regions with chances of early morning mist.

Meanwhile, thunderstorms and rains lashed parts of the country, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi, last week as the weather turns balmy during the so-called winter months.

With the long National Day weekend approaching, residents are gearing up to spend time outdoors, and are being advised to take measures in case it rains heavily.

The NCMS had issued an alert for towering clouds accumulation, with a chance of rain by afternoon on Tuesday in parts of the country, including Ras Al Khaimah and Dubai.

“Partly cloudy weather in general and hazy over the internal areas especially the western areas, the cloud amount will increase gradually, with chance of some towering clouds over the northern, the eastern and some islands areas, with a chance of some rain,” the NCMS forecast for the day reads.

Motorists are advised to maintain caution due to the reduced horizontal visibility as a result of blowing dust and sand.

Minimum temperatures in the country’s mountainous regions are forecast to dip to 10°C while maximum temperatures could soar to 31°C in internal areas, according to the forecast.

Thursday's forecast is similar with chances of rain over some northern and coastal areas and the islands during evening and night.
