Residents of the United Arab Emirates can expect cooler temperatures in the coming days, while the weather in the country is expected to remain unpredictable.

On Thursday, temperatures in Dubai will likely drop by 2-4°C until Friday, making it relatively cold. The mercury is expected to be around 25°C and night temperatures are expected to drop to 17°C. Additionally, there is a possibility of light rain in some areas of the Emirates, while heavy downpours are forecast over Ras Al Khaimah.

Speaking to Khaleej Times on Wednesday, Dr Ahmed Habib of the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) said: “On Thursday we will see medium to low cloud cover both on land and at sea. Some rain is anticipated as the weather system moves pressure, moving steadily towards the coast. area between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This is due to the rapid passage of a low pressure system moving westward over the United Arab Emirates. As of today (Thursday) from late “This morning onwards, this pressure system will rapidly move through the region.”

He also explained that it would be humid in the internal and northern areas, with the day being fair to partly cloudy and cloudy at times in the islands and some coastal and northern areas with a probability of rain.

Rain expected in Ras Al Khaimah

“Cloud cover is expected to accumulate predominantly over the Ras Al Khaimah region, increasing the likelihood of rainfall there, particularly in northern areas of the UAE. It will then slowly move eastwards, affecting specific areas in Fujairah.

“On Friday morning, it is expected to leave the country, bringing with it light morning rain on its way out. The sea will be rough or very rough tomorrow in the Arabian Gulf,” he added.

In early November, Dubai experienced heavy rain, leading to reports of waterlogging in several parts of the emirate.

Drivers struggled through flooded roads, dodging heavy rain in Sharjah and Ajman. Umm Al Quwain faced a torrential downpour with dark skies and showers enveloping Khor Fakkan on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates.

Images on social media also showed water rushing through wadis in the Northern Emirates, with repeated warnings from authorities to avoid those areas during heavy rains.

End of the fall season

Shedding light on the onset of winter, Habib also emphasized that the UAE is at the end of the autumn season, with winter officially beginning around December 22 and 23.

The meteorologist said: “So far, the country has been experiencing average temperatures. In fact, they have been a little higher than average. This will likely continue with sporadic drops in temperature that we will experience for a couple of days until winter begins in the third week of December.

“Normally, January is the coldest month of the year in the UAE, with February also recording lower temperatures than December,” he added.
