UAE weather forecast: Expect more rain, says NCM

Estimated read time 3 min read

The National Centre of Meteorology forecast more rainfall on Saturday and next week.

The weather forecast came as Dubai and the rest of the UAE recover from heavy rainfall on April 16 that caused widespread flooding in the emirates. Dubai was one of the worst hit as continuous rain brought floods that damaged properties and also stalled transportation services across the city. Hundreds of commuters were reported stranded in the floods.

According to NCM, there is a chance of light rainfall on Saturday and Monday, and scattered rain on Tuesday. Here is the 5-day weather forecast:
