The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) posted on social media pictures and videos of flooded wadis and hail storm pounding different parts of the emirate.

Meanwhile, the weather bureau warned of formation of thundery clouds with rainfall and fresh winds, potentially reducing visibility in the area.
