After a strong storm hit several parts of the UAE earlier in the week
The storm that started suddenly in Abu Dhabi and Dubai on Sunday took residents in the UAE by surprise.
So much so that Dua Lipa's concert at the one-year anniversary of the Louvre Museum had to get cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions.
A few hours of rain, wind, thunder and lightning had manic chaos over the cities in the UAE – Dubai and Abu Dhabi police had to issue warnings for residents to remain indoors.
The impact of the storm left loads of rain puddles, broken trees and power cuts – however, that isn't the most shocking part of the natural conditions.
Forecasters say that the storm dumped 8 months’ of rain in just ONE area between Dubai and Abu Dhabi - equating to almost 49.4mm in just ONE hour!
And that’s not the end of it, forecasters warn residents in the UAE of another one.
A storm heading over the Arabian Gulf had already hit Jordan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and made it to the UAE earlier in the week and is expected to bring along a few more clouds, rain and wind.
The National Centre for Meteorology is warning the public of more unstable weather conditions in the days to come in the UAE.
Clouds, rain and winds are expected to scatter around the UAE’s coastal regions until the end of the week.
However, none of the upcoming weather conditions will mimic the sudden one on Sunday or the ones that have hit neighbouring countries.
Forecasters believe that the unstable weather conditions are normal as the seasons' transition from summer to winter in the region – stating that the changes happen quickly and clouds start to move from west to east and cause an unbalance in the weather.
