Abu Dhabi: The record for minimum temperatures in the country was broken this month during the rain, said weathermen.
Rekna in Al Ain broke the record of the lowest temperature, which recorded -1 degree celsius in January 2008, the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) in Abu Dhabi said in a statement issued to Gulf News. Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah recorded about -1C in December 2004.
The lowest temperature during the last season was also recorded in Jebel Al Jais at -0.3C, said NCMS.
Dhudna in Fujairah received the highest amount of rainfall at 133.2 millimetres during the last week.
The centre said that the rainy weather could continue for some time.
Weathermen attributed the variation in weather to "troughs of low pressure which usually pass over the area during the winter time."
