Abu Dhabi: Rain fell in parts of the UAE on Sunday evening until early Monday morning, with forecasters saying the unstable weather is expected to continue until Wednesday.

Rain fell over the areas between Masafi and Ojaili on Sunday. There were also showers over the Fujairah Airport, and in parts of Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and the Western Region. Motorists reported flooding in parts of Dubai on Monday after rain fell overnight.

Forecasters said there is a chance of light to moderate rains in the coastal and northern areas in the next few days.

Visibility is also expected to be affected by the windy and cloudy conditions in the country, according to forecasters.

Forecasters attributed the unstable condition to cold air masses (low pressure) in the middle layer in the atmosphere in addition to the windy and cloudy conditions in the country.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) reported that temperatures are likely to fall and visibility will also be affected.

Weathermen advised people to take extra caution due to low visibility and slippery roads as a result of rain and dusty winds.

Partly cloudy to cloudy condition is expected to continue to dominate much of the UAE until Wednesday, and hence it had warned people of different conditions in the three geographical locations.

Accidents

Two minor traffic accidents took place on Sunday evening. The first incident happened when three cars collided on the Emirates Road after Muhaisena Bridge towards Abu Dhabi.

The second incident involved two cars on Al Quds Road. No one was injured in both accidents.

Nice to take the name of "Pakoray, Samosa and chutney". I know so many people have already put the same things, but these are the specility of rainy season. After mentioning this I am missing my family. I think there is no need to mention the recipe of the items mentioned above.
