Rain falls in Abu Dhabi

Moderate to heavy rains fell over various parts of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. They are accompanied by medium-speed winds which led to a notable drop in temperature.

The skies remain cloudy in several parts of the emirate promising more showers.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology, NCMS, has advised motorists to exercise caution while driving during the rainy conditions from Thursday to Monday.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the NCMS urged the motorists to slow down and keep a safe distance between vehicles.

On Wednesday, the weather will be mostly stable and the clouds will decrease for the sky to become partly cloudy, with the possibility of fog forming by Wednesday morning over some areas, according to the NCMS.

It noted that the weather for the days from Thursday to next Monday will be gradually affected by unstable conditions, where the clouds will increase from time to time with a chance of scattered rain.

Sufficient amounts of rains fell in some parts of the country on Monday and Tuesday.

''The wind will be freshening from time to time and sometimes become strong with towering clouds activity, causing blowing dust/sand especially over exposed areas. The sea will be rough in the Arabian Gulf and Sea of Oman,'' the NCMS said.
