Chance of fog and freezing rain forecast in UAE

 

DUBAI – After days of heavy downpour wreaked havoc on Dubai, Sharjah and other parts of the UAE, the weather bureau said there is a chance of more rain as well as freezing rain in the emirates.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said that the weather on Tuesday (January 14) will remain generally cloudy, with a “chance of rain in the afternoon and evening”.

The NCM also forecast the “probability of freezing rain” in mountainous areas on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

On Sunday, parts of Dubai experienced rainfall and freezing rain, or when liquid raindrops freeze as they hit the ground. The ice pellets in freezing rain are smaller than hail stones that have an average size of one inch in diameter.
