According to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), inhabitants of the United Arab Emirates will be met with heavy rain and lightning the next week, following a week in which they were able to take pleasure in pleasant weather with cloudy sky and a slight chill in the air
Beginning on Sunday and continuing through Tuesday, the upper air depression will gradually deepen, which will result in increased cloudiness in areas that are scattered. According to the Met Department, these clouds are likely to produce convective activity, which will result in rainfall of varied intensities, lightning, thunder, and possibly hail in certain regions.
Temperatures will drop in the coming days
The temperature is also anticipated to drop in the coming days. Wind patterns will vary from southeasterly to northeasterly, ranging from fresh to strong at times, especially when clouds are present. This will result in dust and sand being blown around, and the wind speed will reach between 15 and 25 kilometers per hour, reaching 45 kilometers per hour.
Marine conditions in the Arabian Gulf
Forecasts indicate that the sea conditions in the Arabian Gulf will be rough to very rough, while the conditions in the Oman Sea are expected to be rough, particularly during cloudy periods.
The surface low-pressure system in the Southwest, in conjunction with the humid winds from the southeast, will be the source of these weather disturbances for the foreseeable future. In addition, there is a depression in the upper air that is accompanied by a cold air mass and a westerly trough, which causes the cloud cover to fluctuate from west to west.
A temperature of 3.4 degrees Celsius, which is close to freezing, was reported in the Jebel Jais Mountains in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, February 4th. A temperature of 4.2 degrees Celsius was recorded at Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah at five o'clock on Saturday morning (February 3), breaking the record set by Al Ain, which was 5.3 degrees Celsius in Raknah on January 10.
In light of the fact that the 'Scorpion Season' has begun, the well-known astronomer Ibrahim Al-Jarwan, who is a member of the Arab Federation for Space and Astronomy, forecasts that there will be an increase in rainfall throughout the month of February. It is well known that the Scorpion Season is characterized by the presence of rains throughout large area areas.
Increase in rainfall
There is a significant amount of precipitation during this period, which lasts for forty days and begins around February 6 and ends on March 17. The winds throughout this time period are characterized by their fluctuation between the northwest and the northeast.
It is anticipated that the northern portions of the Arabian Island would experience winter freeze at the beginning of this time. The 'February frost' is something that will be experienced by people living in the Al Jouf region as well as the wider northern area, according to Ibrahim Al-Jarwan. This weather phenomenon is especially noticeable during the first and second weeks of the month of February.
