Rains of varying intensity fell on separate areas of the country, ranging from medium to heavy, and led to the flooding of Wadi Buraq south of Ras Al Khaimah.
The National Center of Meteorology warned the public when it rains not to go to the places where the valleys drain, urging them to avoid collecting water and to drive with caution.
Yesterday, the highest temperature reached 48.8 degrees Celsius in Bida Dafas (Al Dhafra region) at 15:15 local time.
The center pointed to an extension of a shallow depression, accompanied by a weak depression in the upper layers of the atmosphere, which led to the weather being clear to partly cloudy at times, and dusty and partly cloudy at times, and the formation of some rainy cumulus clouds in the east and south in the afternoon.
The areas of rainfall that ranged from light to medium to heavy included “Al-Layat, Masafi, Asfi and Asfni, on Shoukat Al-Munai’i Road, Masafi Dafta Road (light to medium) and on Al-Watan Street towards Masfout in Ras Al Khaimah, and medium to heavy rain on Masafi Dafta Road. And Wadi Al-Tawa in Ras Al Khaimah, and light to medium rain fell on Marbadh Road, Masafi, Khor Fakkan, Dafta, Maliha Kalba Road and rain on Al Watan Fujairah Street towards Hatta Dubai.
