UAE weather: cloudy and hazy with a chance of further rain

Temperatures will reach 43°C in Abu Dhabi and 41°C in Dubai today

Parts of the UAE woke to showers on Wednesday, as the bout of unseasonal weather continued.

Rain fell in areas of Abu Dhabi and Dubai as dark clouds formed over many parts.

Throughout the day it will be partly cloudy in the north, east and southern areas, which could bring further rain, said forecasters.

The unsettled weather is caused by a low pressure system, which has brought lashing rain and flooding to many parts of the country, including the major cities on the coast, over the last week.

On Saturday, footage posted to Storm Centre, a popular channel that tracks the weather, showed the extent of the rain, with waterfalls appearing on Al Ain's Jebel Hafeet after the sudden downpours.

On Sunday, further heavy downpours affected Khatt and Digdaga in Ras Al Khaimah, in Umm Al Quwain and Al Sila in Abu Dhabi's Al Dhafra region.

Temperatures will reach a high of 43C on the coast and 46 inland.

Winds will be light to moderate, becoming gusty at times, blowing dust.

There could be more rain on Thursday in the east and south.
