Fujairah sees highest rainfall, weather to settle down in UAE

(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The National Centre of Meteorology, NCM, has announced that unsettled weather conditions have ended on Wednesday, with less cloud and less likelihood of rain. The Centre confirmed its warning of poor visibility during periods of fog formation as parts of the UAE woke up to light fog this morning.

In a statement, NCM added that the weather, in general, will be clear, although with some cloud in some areas and with the possibility of fog in places. Temperatures are expected to increase slightly

"The sea will be suitable for marine activities where the sea state is generally light to moderate," the NCM's statement said.

The recent bout of unsettled weather began last Friday, 15th December, and continued until Tuesday 19th December, with increased low cloud cover. Some areas witnessed thunder and rainfall, with high winds in some areas causing the transport of dust and sand. Offshore, the winds caused increased wave height, reaching as high as nine feet.

The highest rainfall was recorded on the UAE's East Coast, the Centre said, with five areas recording over 100 mm of rain, including the Port of Fujairah (137 mm), Dhadnah (126.2 mm), Foah (125.6 mm), Fujairah Airport ( 107.6 mm) and Khor Fakkan (101.6 mm).
