UAE dams collect 6.7 million-cubic metres of rainwater
During Monday’s cloud seeding operations, heavy rains and flash flooding struck the northern Emirates, parts of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Dams across the nation collected a staggering 6.7 million cubic metres of rainwater. Temperatures went as low as 17.3 degrees Celsius on Jebel Jais and 18.9 degrees Celcius on the Mebreh mountain.

It’s safe to say the winter season has officially begun in the UAE, after the immense rainfalls. We recommend not taking a road trip to the mountains or wadis this week, as the National Centre of Meteorology predicts more rainfall and cloudiness in the coming days.
