In Sharjah, the lockdown has already been put in place starting today, April 15. The parks will reopen once weather conditions improve. The same was implemented in Ras Al Khaimah from April 15.

This decision aims to ensure the safety of community members in the three emirates.

In an advisory, the UAE’s National Center of Meteorology (NCM) highlighted significant fluctuations in weather conditions across the country.

Heavy rain, intensified by lightning and thunder, poses a risk of flooding in several regions. Additionally, strong winds are expected which will likely reduce horizontal visibility.

From Monday afternoon to Tuesday afternoon, unstable weather conditions will develop in the western areas, gradually moving towards Abu Dhabi, the northern and eastern regions. Residents can expect increased convective clouds, which will bring rain of varying intensities, accompanied by lightning, thunder and the possibility of hail in some areas.

From Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday morning, another wave of unsettled weather will spread from western areas and affect scattered regions across the country.
