As is the norm at this time of year, the Dubai weather has been a little unpredictable lately. One day will be glorious sunshine and the next, there’s fog blanketing the city or gloomy skies. It looks like we can expect some rainfall this weekend.

According to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) there’s a high chance of clouds and subsequent rainfall in the UAE this weekend, so if you were planning a big pool day, it might be better to hold off until the day of.

It looks like the rain and gloomy skies are once again being caused by cloud seeding, judging by the NCMS Twitter page, which has taken to using the hashtags ‘rain’ and ‘cloud seeding’ when posting about the rainy weather in the UAE.
