UAE witnessed heavy rainfall on Friday afternoon as a result of the country being affected by air depression, and surface winds that led to the formation of rain clouds.
Heavy rain lashed scattered areas of Sharjah, Umm Al Quwain, and Ras Al Khaimah during and after Friday prayers. The UAE weather body said that Al Dhaid received significant rain.
The temperature in the area came down a few notches.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) called on the public to exercise caution during heavy rain and strong winds over some eastern areas, which may cause solid objects to fly and horizontal visibility to become lower.
It also called on them to stay away from flooded areas.
