UAE: This month will see cold evenings due to a sharp drop in temperature, according to a top official
One of the two months that fall between summer and winter is October, which is typically marked by abrupt, dramatic shifts in the weather.
By October 15, the UAE is expected to have experienced a three- to four-degree drop in temperature. This will have a significant impact on the weather during the night and early in the morning.
This is in line with the prediction made by Dr Ahmed Habib of the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), who told Khaleej Times on Monday that this month's lows will be between three and four degrees. By the middle of October, individuals will begin to notice a difference in the weather both at night and in the early morning hours.
One of the two months that fall between summer and winter is October, and this time of year is typically marked by abrupt and dramatic changes in the weather.
"This month sees a dramatic drop in temperatures, particularly in the second half as compared to September. Due to the circulation of land and sea breezes, southeasterly winds predominate in the late hours of the night and early morning, changing to northwesterly winds in the afternoons and evenings, the speaker continued.
elevated relative humidity
Relative humidity in October is often highest in the early morning, progressively dropping as the sun rises, and then rising once more in the late afternoon.
The average relative humidity is about 51%, and there is a greater likelihood of fog formation, particularly in the middle of the night and early in the morning.
This month, there will be more fog and mist because of a rise in the relative humidity of the atmosphere. Thus, the likelihood of fog formation is high. In the event that you are impacted by unsteady weather, there will likely be wind and precipitation across the nation. According to the senior expert meteorologist, it depends on the pressure system influencing the upper and in-surface layers.
Not quite winter
As the weather improves, he went on to further explain the phenomenon of the autumn temperature transition between summer heat and winter cold.
"We are still amid the autumn foliage. Although it won't be winter yet, the nighttime low will begin to drop and some folks may feel a little chilly. The meteorological conditions alter during the autumn season, going from steadiness to sudden instability. The situation is always shifting. For instance, things might be stable today, but there might be instability in the area the following day or even that same day in the afternoon or evening. The second transitional period months are indicated when such erratic shifts begin to occur.
He notes that as the month comes to a finish, the Siberian high-pressure system starts to have an impact on the Indian monsoon. There is more cloud cover in the eastern parts, especially when Cumulonimbus clouds occur.
The UAE is expected to get greener by mid-October, when the rainy Al Wasem season usually starts.
June saw the highest frequency of fog in 2017, with 22 instances and five days with mist. In Al Shiweb, the maximum quantity of rain ever recorded during this month was 139.0 mm in 2016.
Nevertheless, there is no indication of rain or wind during the next three days. Only in specific areas of the nation do we anticipate an increase in fog probability during the next five days," he continued.
