Another 48 hours of rain‎ forecast for parts of UAE

Following days of rainfall in parts of UAE, the country’s weather bureau has forecast the next 48 hours would likely follow a similar pattern.

The northeastern belt of UAE has experienced the wet weather, with reports of hail storms and thunderstorms in Ras Al Khaimah, along with heavy rain in surrounding areas of Fujairah and Al Ain.

The UAE's National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) told Emirates 24|7: "The township of Masafi has experienced the most rainfall, with 15.4mm recorded on Monday.

"Areas such as Al Manama, along with Mezyad in Al Ain have all experienced similar thundery rain."

Calling the weather pattern a tropical conversion zone that has extended to the northeast area of the Arabian Peninsula, NCMS stated the next two days should continue in a similar pattern over those areas, along with neighbouring Oman around Al Hajjar mountain range.

While UAE‎ residents could plan their weekend outings to the Northern Emirates to enjoy the respite in weather, the temperatures may not follow suit.

NCMS said: "During peak rains, the weather in Masafi and surrounding areas had dropped to 25 degrees Celsius around 3pm, but it will continue to be very hot and humid, with the rest of the country and cities of Dubai, Abu Dhabi averaging 45 degrees Celsius."

Quizzed whether a wayward cloud could find its way into the cities in a similar pattern to Sunday, when Dubai experienced drizzling in parts, NCMS stated it was unlikely.

Wet Tuesday

Dhaid in Sharjah, areas of Suhaila and Zubaydh and Ras Al Khaimah, saw heavy thunderstorms - rain, lightning and hail, 'Al Bayan' reports.

Rain in Dhaid ranged between medium and heavy. Ras Al Khaimah saw heavy rains accompanied by a drop in temperatures.

Reports of rain in Al Ain were also coming in.

NCMS has forecast the weather to be partly cloudy in general today, with light rain forecast in afternoon in some areas.
