Dubai: The week started on a wet note as commuters made their way through traffic in the rain.

On Saturday night, the NCMS issued a thunder warning, which was accompanied with strong winds that took place at night and into the early hours of Sunday morning.

Scattered rainfall affected many areas of the UAE on Sunday morning, ranging all the way from Abu Dhabi to Al Ain, and from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah.

According to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS), Sunday’s weather is expected to be cloudy all across the country with average temperatures of 23 to 26 degrees Celsius.  

Over the next two days, residents can look forward to more cloudy days ahead with light to moderate rainfall.
