UAE weather warning, schools to adopt distance learning mode

Dubai: The National Centre of Meteorology has issued a stern warning about the impending unstable weather conditions set to hit the UAE, commencing from Monday evening and persisting until at least Wednesday. The forecast includes a slew of adverse weather phenomena such as rain, thunder, lightning, hail and strong winds, prompting authorities to take precautionary measures across the nation.

Parts of the Emirates are bracing for heavy rainfall accompanied by thunder and lightning on both Monday and Tuesday. Reports have already surfaced of significant rainfall in the Northern Emirates, with similar conditions anticipated elsewhere.

Tuesday is expected to witness wind speeds reaching up to 70kph, leading authorities to advise motorists against unnecessary travel during rainfall.

In response to the anticipated weather conditions, all government schools in the UAE will transition to distance learning mode on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Additionally, Dubai's governmental bodies and private schools will operate remotely on Tuesday, following an announcement by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai.

The weather forecast indicates rain and thunder in Abu Dhabi starting from 7 pm on Monday, with heavy rainfall expected to hit Dubai around 11 pm. Tuesday morning is forecasted to bring thunder and lightning to Dubai, with unstable conditions expected to ease by 10 am on Wednesday.

Dr. Ahmed Habib of the NCM suggests that the severity of the weather system in the UAE is influenced by the geographical nature of neighbouring Oman. Reduced visibility and rough sea conditions are anticipated, particularly in the western region of Abu Dhabi.

The Ministry of Interior has assured the public of its preparedness to handle weather fluctuations and has stressed the importance of adhering to safety directives. Private sector companies are urged to take necessary precautions to ensure the safety of their workers during the anticipated period of adverse weather.

The forecast extends over the next five days, with the most severe weather conditions expected from Monday to Wednesday.
