The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology has issued a forecast for rain tonight and Friday morning in the UAE particularly in the northern region.
It also forecast that strong winds coming from North Saudi Arabia will substantially bring down the temperature on Friday and also raise dust reducing the visibility especially over the inland area.
The maximum temperature recorded was 30.1 degrees Celsius at Al Jazeera B.G while the extreme maximum air temperature from the historical climatic data shows36 degrees Celsius recorded on 1991 at Asab, located to the western interior region.
The high pressure extension coming from the north of Saudi Arabia expected to affect the country on Thursday to accelerate the northwesterly winds to become strong over the sea in the evening and night of Thursday, over the western coast in particular.
This strong wind will then extend gradually to the rest areas, causing a substantial decrease on temperature on Friday. The cool winds will generate sea waves above 8-10 feet.
Because of the coincidence of this wind with the extension of cold air mass in the middle and upper layers of the atmosphere, the clouds will gradually accumulate and increase in amount over the islands and the northern areas with a chance of some rain over the northern region especially at night on Thursday and Friday morning.
