Rainy, foggy, cloudy Saturday in UAE... Showers in Dubai, Al Ain

By Bindu Rai

LATEST: Just when you thought the weather in UAE has become bright and sunny, it gets wet again.

Saturday morning saw showers in Al Ain and Dubai.

Meanwhile, UAE residents woke up to a foggy morning today with overcast skies.

The cloud cover is expected to increase especially over some coastal areas and islands associated with some rainfall, according to a NCMS forecast.

Relative humidity will increase during night and early morning hours hitting up to 95 per cent in internal areas.

The minimum temperatures, meanwhile, will hover between 15 and 20 degree Celsius.

Weekend weather: Don’t go wadi bashing

As the weather stabilises after four days of thunderstorms and stormy skies, those who are planning to head into the mountains may have to wait a while with wadis still overflowing with accumulated rainwater.
On Thursday, the rainfall continued with the UAE’s National Center for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) confirming moderate to heavy rains in Al Ain and other north and eastern parts of the country.

By Friday though, the weather will stabilise, as the low pressure system clears to make way for partly cloudy weather, with light to moderate winds.
Even the Arabian Gulf and the Oman Sea, which recorded wave height reaching highs of 10 feet on Wednesday, will be slight to moderate on Friday.
Those of you planning a trip into the desert for overnight camping, would find the weather perfect to pitch a tent; however, a flashflood warning remains in check until water levels descend.
The weather on Saturday will follow in a similar pattern, with light to moderate winds, partly cloudy, but stable.
However, as the weather warms up, the relative humidity will increase during night and early morning over some internal and coastal areas on Friday and Saturday, with a chance of fog formation.
