Heavy rain fell across the UAE on Monday morning with forecasters predicting more to come.

People on the east coast woke to dark skies with the town of Murbah, north of Fujairah city, among those hit by downpours.

It represents a second day of showers for the east coast as temperatures drop.

The lowest temperature recorded on Monday was only 10.6°C in Jebel Jais at 7am.

Videos posted on the National Centre of Meteorology's Twitter feed on Sunday, meanwhile, showed lashing rain drenching towns along the coast.

Al Bidya and Khor Fakkan were among the towns affected, with footage showing driving rain and grey skies.

Forecasters expect the wet weather to continue.

The National Centre of Meteorology warned people to expect cloud, fog and rain – especially in the east – to continue until the weekend.

Winds up to 40 kilometres per hour could also kick up dust clouds, particularly in exposed areas.
