in Dubai and Sharjah: Unstable Weather Ahead in the UAE

Brace yourself for rain, lightning and hailstorms in the UAE, there's unstable weather ahead.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) tweeted this morning (25 March), “Light rain in Dubai and Sharjah currently.”

The weather affected traffic in the morning, with some debris falling on the street on Airport Road. The Dubai Police tweeted, "There is congestion on the Airport road in front of Building 1 as a result of falling of parts. The street is partially shut down until the removal of the remaining parts."

The mavens at NCMS predict that the weather will become more unstable tomorrow (Wednesday 26 March), think cloudy skies, wind, rain and storms.

It'll also get a lot cooler, and temperatures could fall to 13 degrees in some parts of the UAE.

To rain again in Dubai and N Emirates

Published Tuesday, April 01, 2014

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology, NCMS, has forecast cloudy and hazy weather in general for tomorrow across the UAE.

According to the centre, cloud amount will increase by Wednesday afternoon, with a chance of rain over coastal and northern areas by night and early morning.

There will be moderate to fresh winds and the sea will be moderate to rough over the Arabian Gulf and moderate over the Sea of Oman.

Today morning, UAE residents woke up to another freaky weather pattern on Tuesday morning with parts of Dubai witnessing showers.

The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology confirmed mild to moderate showers this morning across the UAE, including Abu Dhabi, Ghantoot, Jebel Ali, Jumeirah and parts of Dubai.

There also has been reports of light mist descending in the morning hours in parts of Liwa.

With the unpredictable weather, the NCMS has also issued a marine warning to boats and fishermen, advising against frequenting into the waters of the Arabian Gulf and the Oman Sea due to choppy weather.

Chances of wet weather conditions are expected to continue over the next two days, as per the NCMS, with light to moderate showers across parts of UAE.

Motorists were caught unawares, as the weather seemed to have settled after a hazy week that saw thundershowers and rising humidity.

Just as residents were preparing to welcome summer, the skies have once again turned cloudy, with the national weather bureau forecasting hazy weather with chances of rain over far north.

Moderate to fresh winds will blow up sand and dust reducing visibility.

Dubai Police tweeted: "Dear driver, Please leave enough and safe space between your car and the car in front of you."

According to a NCMS report, relative humidity will rise with maximum temperatures in internal areas hitting 35 degrees centigrade.

Hazy weather with chances of scattered rain is expected until Thursday in parts of UAE.

Actually the rainfall amounts are pretty normal. Infact, the past few years have been exceptionally dry ones. The number of wet days this winter is more in line with what I remember when I was growing up. Nothing unusual about it at all!

The new blockbuster film "NOAH" has been banned in the UAE and Qatar. Maybe they should rethink that policy if the rainfall is likely to continue for 7 days and 7 nights

Tremors felt in Dubai from 5.1 magnitude earthquake in southern Iran

Tremors were felt across the UAE this morning from a 5.1-magnitude earthquake that struck Iran.

It hit at 9.44am UAE time and the impact here measured between 4 and 5 on the Mercalli intensity scale, according to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology.

The weather bureau confirmed the epicentre was 60km east of Qeshm, an island in southern Iran, about 120km north of Ras Al Khaimah.

The US Geological Survey also reported the earthquake as a 5.1-magnitude striking at 9.44am at a depth of 10 kilometres.

Residents in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, especially those living and working in high-rise buildings, took to Twitter after feeling tremors from the earthquake with some reporting they had been evacuated from buildings.

Workers at the Dubai International Finance Centre were among those evacuated.

Rain, dust storm in parts of UAE

Rain, dust storm in parts of UAE

Weather to continue tomorrow; Dubai, Al Ain experience low to medium rain; police issues alert for drivers; warning against going to open areas


By Bindu Rai/Muna Ahmad


Published Sunday, August 17, 2014

As the mercury crept up to hover near 50°C over the past few days, there was a respite from the heat wave as sporadic rain fell across the UAE, albeit with a dust storm in its wake.

The country’s National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) confirmed the development, which has occurred due to a low pressure centred at the south west part of the UAE.

There are reports of light showers across parts of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi Police has issued a warning to motorists, tweeting: “Light to medium rain on different parts in Al Ain. Motorists are urged to drive cautiously.”

A spokesperson with the NCMS said: “This weather pattern is expected to continue for the next 36 hours, with rainfall also expected tomorrow, especially in Al Ain, the Eastern region and possibly Fujairah tomorrow.

“The dust storms are also expected to continue, reducing horizontal visibility to approximately 2km across areas.”

Meanwhile, Twitter continued with tweets to the same, with Salman Khan writing: “Highlight of the day so far. Drizzle in peak summers at Dubai Motor City.”

Anshul Mehta wrote: “Heavy clouds hover over Al Ain, rain expected in some parts of the city.”

There are reports of rain on Emirates Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Al Khail Road, Dubai-Al Ain highway and in Jebel Ali.

Winter rains come to UAE, mercury goes down

Residents from parts of Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Dubai said the heavy to moderate rains with thunderstorms brought a welcome respite from the long spell of summer heat.








The first winter rains hit Dubai and the Northern Emirates on Saturday evening, causing a mild nip in the air.

Earlier in the day, strong winds swept through Dubai and Sharjah, kicking up dust and sand and reducing visibility. Residents from parts of Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Dubai said the heavy to moderate rains with thunderstorms brought a welcome respite from the long spell of summer heat.

Officials from the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) stated that the weather will remain partly cloudy and hazy in general on Sunday. Also, volume of clouds will increase over some northern and eastern areas. There will be moderate to fresh winds in general, that will cause blowing of dust over some internal and open land areas.

Humidity is also likely to increase during the night as well as early morning on Sunday over some coastal and internal areas. Residents and motorists told Khaleej Times that they experienced slight discomfort and low visibility while driving on Al Khail Road, Al Ittihad Road and Shaikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road on Saturday afternoon.

Rahul Sudheer, a resident of Qusais, said: “I am looking forward to the coming winter months. It’s been a long summer and the change of weather would make the evenings very pleasant.”
