The Meteorological Department has issued yellow and orange alerts, warning residents of potentially dangerous weather conditions. They advise community members to exercise caution and take necessary precautions when going outdoors.

Several areas of Al Ain have witnessed heavy rain, including Al Foah, Al Bad’ and Ishabah. Light rain fell over the Filli area in Sharjah and Jais Mountain in Ras Al Khaimah.
