Thunderstorms hit Al Ain for third day


Al Ain streets are flooded after 20 minutes of rain. Unlike the hot mornings when the temperature reaches 45 degrees Celsius, the afternoons are cooler due to the rain.

Al Ain: Residents have been enjoying good weather for the last three days as rain, gusty winds and thunderstorms have been hitting the city in the afternoon.

Unlike the hot mornings when the temperature climbs into the mid-40s, the afternoons are cooler due to the regular rain.

Yesterday, heavy rains hit Al Ain and within 20 minutes the streets were flooded. The sky started growing cloudy at about 3pm and within an hour the city experienced the summer's heaviest rains.

The rain, accompanied by thunder and lightning, was so heavy that pedestrians had to take refuge under shop shelters. Many drivers also had to stop at roadside parking spaces.

"This is really strange weather," said Gopal Varma, an Indian expatriate.

He said weather conditions are uncomfortable in the morning but much nicer in the evening after the rain.

Since the rain has been falling for the last three days in the afternoon, Varma said his children wait for it to enjoy bathing in it.

Hammad Akhlaq, a Pakistani expatriate, said conditions become pleasant with the rain but it has become an expensive problem for him as his car gets dirty.

Fujairah also experienced light rainfall yesterday.

Heh. Yes, in UAE people enjoy the good weather when it is pissing it down like mad. While at the exact same time people in UK celebrate their highest temperature of the year being whole 29 degrees. Everybody wins.

Indian Monsoon Low heading to the Oman and UAE

Starting Tuesday and till Thursday an area of strong low pressure coming off the indian ocean is likely to flood Oman and parts of the UAE. As the Monsoon reaching its extreme strength, an extension of the monsoon will result in a strong low pressure forming over Oman and the UAE.
The GFS weather model supports such a forecast.

Expect strong thunderstorm, much lower temperatures and honestly a weather that hasn't been experienced here before.

Al Ain seems to be the most likely area to get such a weather. Dubai will get a taste of it too.

God knows best.

They must really stop psychiatric patients from carrying out weather reports in Dubai. I'll believe it when I hear it from the Met. Office.

I believe it is more about the mountains in Iran which prevent the rain

will this actually come? my sister told me she read a report that the biggest storm in UAE history was coming yesterday... and i wake up.. nothing... sometimes i wonder haha...

i also heard from a developer that even if the temperature goes over 50 degrees celsius, they never report it, because its law that if the temperature goes over 50 workers have the day off...
