Meanwhile, some areas of Al Ain on Thursday witnessed medium to heavy rain, especially the southern areas of the city and along Abu Dhabi-Al Ain Road.

While the majority of the areas experienced a cloudy weather associated by high humidity.

In some areas, heavy rain was seen associated by winds over east of Khazna, south of Swihan, Al Waqun and Ain Al Faydah. This led to surface run-offs along the streets. Other areas witnessed moderate rains, such as the Anakah, Dumtah and Al Dhahra.
