There was a weather forecast for likely rain and unstable weather on Wednesday and Thursday from The United Arab Emirates’ National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology.

Heavy rain in the desert Gulf is rare and Wednesday morning was normal cloudy morning and many motorists who travel on the Dubai-Abu Dhabi highway were very hard hit in the afternoon. In the wake of two to three hours heavy rains and hailstorm, they were stuck on the highway. Some resorted to parking their vehicles on the roadsides for safety. The roads were turned into ponds.

According to the reports, people in Dubai have taken a sigh of relief today as skies have cleared and rain has stopped. Road Traffic is back to normal in most of the areas after a chaotic Wednesday.
