Don’t forget your umbrella!

Stepped out of your home and noticed it was a bit darker than usual? It’s a great sign because it looks like the peak of UAE summer is behind us and the temperatures are finally starting to drop.

Rainfall has already lashed a few areas in the UAE and the National Center of Meteorology expects more rainfall ahead, as announced on their official Twitter account.

According to the tweet, there is a chance of convective clouds which is normally associated with rainfall and fresh winds. It went on to state that dust and sand will cause poor horizontal visibility at times over some Coastal Northern areas on Sunday, August 30.

The meteorology centre also shared some video footage of rainfall (and lightening) over the UAE
