The UAE’s national weather bureau has warned us to prepare for rain and possible sand storms on Wednesday and Thursday. The wet weather is expected to hit coastal areas and the northeast of the country worst, bringing heavy rain to Fujairah and parts on Dubai near the sea.

It’s expected that the rain clouds will affect Fujairah from Wednesday afternoon, gradually building to include areas on Dubai and Sharjah. Reports seem to suggest that Abu Dhabi will get off lightly, with patchy showers on Wednesday evening.

According to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology The Arabian Gulf is set for a few rough days, with heavy rain and winds. This may bring sand storms and strong winds across UAE cities.

Thursday looks like it could be worse with heavy rain expected in Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah.

The good news is that things should be a lot calmer by Friday.
