The UAE was hit with SERIOUS rain this morning!
What a wonderful way to welcome the New Year, torrential rain, thunderstorms and lightning!
This morning most of the UAE woke up to loud thunder, instead of an alarm clock! Hitting the hardest in Sharjah and Ajman, lightning was lighting up the dark sky!
The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology tweeted this morning, the severity of the downpour in Sharjah.
Though temperatures remain relatively hotter than in recent weeks, Jebal Jais in Ras Al Khaimah recorded the lowest temperature in the UAE of 10.7°C.
