Dubai: After heavey downpours in Sharjah Wednesday evening, UAE residents can expect more rains in some parts of the country today.

While it will be partly cloudy to sunny across the country, low rain-bearing clouds are expected to develop over the East coast by afternoon, the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) said. 

Cloudy weather and rainfall accompanied by lightning and thunder are expected to hit the UAE until Saturday, August 12, especially over eastern areas such as Fujairah and southern areas in parts of Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, according to a statement the NCM released earlier.
