On Tuesday, the UAE was hit by hail and heavy rain in some areas, and this week, more rain and fog are predicted.
Fujairah, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Al Ain all reported downpours, and forecasters advised the public to exercise caution in the dangerous weather conditions.
The National Center for Meteorology issued a warning about the possibility of further rain through Tuesday night at 9 o’clock.
On Wednesday and Thursday, there was a risk of further rain, along with winds that might reach 40 kph, according to the forecast.
On Friday and Saturday, there is a probability of fog and mist, especially in coastal locations, according to the weather center.
Over the upcoming two weekends leading into October, temperatures are probably going to drop across the nation.
The National Centre of Meteorology predicted that after a long, hot summer, humidity levels would remain high at about 75%, although lower than the 95 to 100% in earlier months.
Particularly towards the shore, residents should anticipate morning fog and a gentle breeze in the late evening.
The NCM has predicted that rain clouds are likely on Wednesday and Thursday, and that nighttime humidity will rise.
On Friday morning, there is a chance of mist forming, and by afternoon, convective clouds may rise over the mountains.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings, coastal and interior areas will be covered with fog and mist.
The mercury will be hovering around 37°C this weekend, marking the first time this month that daytime temperatures in Dubai will be below 40°C.
Any weather change won’t affect residents of Abu Dhabi and Sharjah until the weekend after.
The majority of the nation’s maximum temperatures won’t fall below 40°C until early October, according to forecasts.
The exception is in Fujairah’s Hajar Mountains. This weekend’s minimum temperature in Fujairah is expected to be around 29°C, with daytime highs of 35°C.
The gradual dip in temperature leading up to October is a normal occurrence during the high humidity and frequent mornings with thick fog warnings.
According to meteorologists, hot weather will persist with no relief even as the temperature starts to drop.
Low-pressure systems and winds moving from the south-east and north-east across the Arabian Gulf are to blame for the shifting weather patterns.
The little change in temperature is caused by low pressure systems that bring moisture and water vapor from the ocean to inland regions, maintaining humidity levels as high as 80%.
