It’s already been a cold start to 2022, but if you stay near Jebel Jais, things are about to turn frigid. According to The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), UAE residents will feel the chill and should expect a “significant drop in temperature” in the next few days.
The UAE is currently experiencing its coldest January ever, according to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM).
Some parts of the emirates might experience temperatures nearing zero.
Oh yeah, I forgot. Jebel Jais already froze last week.
Cloudy with a chance of duststorms
The cold wave comes with friends as strong winds, rough seas, and dust storms are also expected. Oh, there’s also a decent chance for rain.
“[It will be] dusty and partly cloudy at times over some coastal and northern areas, with another significant drop in temperatures, and a probability of frost formation over some areas by Saturday morning,” the NCM said.
Birds of a feather freeze together
The UAE isn’t the only torrid locale facing a cold winter.
Snow has fallen in the Saharan town of Ain Sefra for just the fifth time in 42 years as temperatures dropped to -2 degree Celsius. Just to put that drop in perspective, the town has experienced highs of 58 degree Celsius.
