UAE weather: more rain expected in Dubai and Abu Dhabi as temperatures sink to 3.9ºC

Wednesday is expected to bring the last of the wet weather for a while

Several cities in the UAE will receive showers on Wednesday, as the run of wet weather continues.

Abu Dhabi and Dubai could have rain throughout the day, with showers also expected in Al Ain and Ras Al Khaimah in the afternoon and evening.

It will be cloudy over the coast and islands, with moderate to fresh winds, which will become gusty at times, blowing dust and sand.

Temperatures are falling, and the coldest place in the UAE on Wednesday was Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah where a chilly 3.9°C was recorded, the National Centre of Meteorology reported.

There could be highs of 21ºC in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. At 19ºC, Al Ain will be slightly cooler.

The rest of the week is expected to be dry, as the last of the weather system that brought intense rainfall to parts of the country eventually moves away.

It will, however, be cloudy at times.

On Thursday, winds will be moderate to fresh, becoming strong and carrying dust and sand. Conditions will be rough to very rough in the Arabian Gulf and rough to moderate in the Sea of Oman.

The weather will be slightly warmer and sunnier on Friday, the end of the new working week, with highs of 24ºC in Dubai, 23ºC in Abu Dhabi and 21ºC in Al Ain. It will become humid overnight.

The weekend will be dry and mostly sunny in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, but cloudy in Dubai, with temperatures in the low-20s.

There is a chance of early mist or fog on Sunday and Monday morning.
