Rain is expected in Abu Dhabi on Friday, National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) forecasts show.

It comes after showers fell in parts of Dubai on Thursday, with dark clouds forming overhead.

Adverse conditions were also felt in Ras Al Khaimah, with moderate rain also reported in Umm Al Quwain, Sharjah and Fujairah.

The NCM warned of “a chance of convective cloud formation over some coastal and northern areas associated with rainfall and fresh wind with a speed of 40km/hr causing blowing dust and rough sea,” in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

By Saturday and Sunday, wet weather conditions appear to subside with highs of 27°C reported in Dubai and 26°C in Abu Dhabi.

While on Monday, it appears the clearer conditions will continue – with highs of 28°C in Dubai and 27°C in Abu Dhabi, which is replicated in Tuesday's forecast.

The UAE has experienced a mixed start to the month, with bouts of morning fog giving way to bright sunshine after heavy rain in November.

Temperatures typically dip during winter, from December to March.
