Urgent UAE: Good news about the weather in the coming days
The National Centre of Meteorology said that the different kinds of rain and strong winds seen in different parts of the country over the past few days were caused by what is called the "season of wind activity." This is when local cumulus clouds form and thunderstorms with hail fall, because currents usually come before or follow them. Very rough air coming down.
The centre thinks that "scent activity" will continue to affect some parts of the country today, especially the hilly areas between the emirates of Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah, but not as much as in the past few days.
The centre confirmed that the rain and strong winds are caused by a depression coming from the east and another depression that moves moist layers from the Arabian Sea into the country. The passage of these layers, along with heating factors and the presence of mountains, caused cumulus rain clouds to form, especially in the east.
The centre told "Emirates Today" that this kind of weather was expected and that it had been warned about it. This kind of weather is called "season of scent activity" in the country, and it usually happens in the second half of summer, around the beginning of July. It comes in waves that last one day, then get weaker over time, and it affects a lot of places near the Hajar mountain range.
Some people think that the name "activity of aromas" comes from the fact that this condition happens during "sun winds," or early mornings, while others think it has to do with downward winds.
He said that over the past two days, the average speed of air currents reached 50 km/h, and in some places, the wind speed reached 100 km/h.
Good weather forecast for the coming days
And the centre said they expected the effects of this depression or "scent activity" to continue in some parts of the country today, especially in mountainous areas, but less severely than in the past few days. They also said that today's weather will be partly cloudy and sometimes dusty during the day, with the chance of some cumulus clouds forming. In the afternoon, it may spread to the south with rain, and it will be humid in some coastal areas from tonight until tomorrow morning. The winds will be from the southwest to the northwest, light to moderate in speed, and sometimes strong, with clouds causing dust and dust reducing horizontal visibility. It can go from 10 km/h to 25 km/h on land and up to 45 km/h on the water, where the waves in the Arabian Gulf and Sea of Oman are small.
He said that tomorrow's weather will be fair to partly cloudy and sometimes dusty. Low clouds will form on the eastern coast in the morning, and cumulus clouds may form in the afternoon in the east. It will be humid at night over some coastal areas until Thursday, and the wind will be from the southeast. It changes to a northwesterly light to moderate speed and is sometimes busy with clouds, causing dust and dirt. Its speed runs from 10 km/h to 25 km/h, hitting 40 km/h at sea, which is light in the Arabian Gulf and light to medium. In the Sea of Oman, there are sometimes waves.
The centre said that next Thursday will be mostly clear to partly cloudy, with low clouds on the eastern coast in the morning and cumulus clouds possible in the afternoon to the east and south. The winds will be from the southeast to the northeast, light to moderate in speed, and sometimes strong. During the day, it stirs up dust, and its speed runs from 10 km/h to 25 km/h, going up to 40 km/h on the sea, where there are only small waves in the Arabian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.
The centre predicted that the weather for next Friday will be clear to partly cloudy, with the possibility of cumulus clouds forming in the afternoon to the east and south. They also said that the winds will be southeasterly to northeasterly, light to moderate in speed, sometimes active to cause dust during the day, and their speed ranges from 10 km/h to 25 km/h, up to 40 km/h on the sea, which has light waves in the Arabian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.
