Apparently It's About to Get Really, Really Cold

Perhaps it's best to avoid a trip to your pool, because if you thought it couldn't get any colder than it has been over the past few weeks, you're sorely mistaken. 

Rain and cold temperatures in Dubai

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) have warned that there's going to be a large drop in temperatures in the UAE this weekend, and across other parts of the Arabian Gulf, thanks to strong winds bringing cold air from Iran's direction. 

In fact, Google's showing us that Friday will see temperatures drop as low as 17 degrees Celsius during the day, and 14 at night. Eeeek!

Residents are being warned not to visit the beach too, as waves are expected to be over 14ft offshore in the Arabian Gulf and the Oman Sea.

In other parts of the country, there's a possibility of temperatures dropping to freezing, with a chance of snowfall over the mountains. Specifically Jebel Jais, as it's over 1,900 metres. Other parts of the UAE can expect a chance of rain, or otherwise cloudy skies.
