UAE’s NCEMA Forecasts Unstable Weather, Thunder & Lightning; Suggests Preventive Measures

A few days ago, the United Arab Emirates witnessed heavy rainfall, which resulted in flooding and waterlogged streets. However, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has warned UAE of another unstable weather and asked to brace for another heavy rainfall. 

NCEMA Forecasts Unstable Weather In UAE

The United Arab Emirates’ National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has emphasised that it is ready for the expected severe precipitation this week. The government department stressed in a post on X (formerly Twitter) that it is prepared for any situation, including in the wake of the recent storm. All relevant government agencies have taken all necessary precautions and are ready for inclement weather.

According to a National Centre of Meteorology, weather forecast for the United Arab Emirates, thunder and lightning are expected to arrive from the west by Wednesday, May 1, and spread across the country’s western, coastal, and eastern regions by Thursday, May 2.

Held Meetings With Relevant Departments

As the nation continues to recover from the greatest rainstorm to ever hit the UAE, the NCEMA says it will keep an eye on the weather and assess any potential effects in impacted areas. In order to guarantee readiness for the approaching potentially dangerous weather conditions, the NCEMA reported that it has arranged meetings with several departments. 

On Sunday and Monday, there were reports of heavy rain in several areas of Dubai, Sharjah, and Fujairah. Videos posted on social media by the NCM showed that while Ajman experienced mild showers, Ras Al Khaimah experienced intense rainfall in several areas.

It also cautions you to follow accepted safety procedures, particularly in regions that frequently experience intense downpours. Four red line stations are still completely offline, meaning that the Dubai Metro is still not fully operational after the storms in April. After the heavy flooding, a lot of people suffered from lost belongings, damaged homes, and even abandoned cars. Further, AED 2 billion were set aside to help people whose homes were damaged, the UAE declared.

Unlike earlier times of high rainfall in the nation that have been generated by cloud seeding operations, the April storms were a natural event brought on by climate change.
