Rain is expected across the UAE over the next three days, with temperatures continuing to drop, the National Centre of Meteorology confirmed.

Wet weather is predicted in the northern and eastern areas with strong winds and clouds appearing by Thursday, with the weather bureau adding that the country will be affected by a surface depression extending from the south-west.

The skies will be partly cloudy to cloudy at times over some areas, especially western and coastal areas, extending over the northern areas, with the possibility of rain, especially on Wednesday night.

On Thursday and Friday, the upper air trough gradually deepens as the amounts of clouds increase over scattered areas, with convective clouds, especially over the northern, eastern and coastal areas, accompanied by rainfall.

Winds will be moderate to fresh south-easterly, becoming north-westerly on Friday, turning strong at times over the sea, causing blowing dust and sand and colder temperatures will continue across the weekend.
