#CloudSeeding: Stay Indoors If You’re Not Already Because The UAE Is Expecting More Rain Over The Weekend


UAE residents have been advised to stay indoors and to follow social-distancing instructions, in efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19 and now there will be no excuse to not do so because the UAE is all set to welcome a rainy weekend.

The National Center of Meteorology has forecasted that parts of the UAE, especially Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, and Umm al Quwain can expect light, scattered rainfall that may persist until Monday. This is the result of cloud seeding that’s been induced to seed the convective clouds and enhance rainfall in the region.

Temperatures are predicted to reach 31°C in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a light, pleasant breeze persisting throughout the evenings, over the weekend.

Friday and Sat might see a “development of clouds accompanied some cumulative clouds over the scattered areas of the country associated with rainfall of different intensity with a chance of lightning and thunder at times over some areas.”

As confirmed by the NCM.

Rainfall is likely to continue through till Monday with the chance of thunder and lightning even in the north and east of the country
