Abu Dhabi: Clouds coming in from Saudi Arabia are expected to cause light rain to fall in the coastal and northern parts of the UAE over the next three days, with the worst of last week’s heavy storms seemingly over.

“There are some clouds moving from Saudi Arabia and into our area which will bring some light drizzle over the next two days,” said a weather forecaster from the National Centre of Meteorology and Semiology (NCMS).

“The light rain will not be continuous, but will come and go over Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah,” the forecaster added.

Mist or fog that also recently formed in the morning is also expected to continue over the next few days according to the weather forecaster.

With Spring rapidly approaching and winter drawing to a close, residents can also expect higher temperatures.

“The temperature is rising. On Saturday we had a maximum high of 36°C, and this increase in temperature will remain for the next few days, in the range of 34 degrees to 36 degrees,” said the weather forecaster.

The forecaster also explained that last week’s stormy weather conditions in the UAE that brought heavy showers and strong winds was due to the changing seasons.

“Around this time every year, during the transitional period between winter and summer, we see changes in the weather, going from stable to unstable,” the forecaster said.
