Rain and thunderstorms will continue the threat for flooding in Oman and United Arab Emirates through Wednesday.
Areas from Abu Dhabi to Dubai and Muscat will be threatened by thunderstorms which can cause strong winds and flash flooding.
While these storms are not expected to pose as great of a flooding threat compared to previous storms between 7 March and 10 March, isolated flash flooding will be possible.
Locally heavy thunderstorms will track from Al Ain to Rustaq into Wednesday, impacting areas that received flooding rainfall earlier in the month. A few locations could receive as much as 50 mm (2.0 inches) of rain, though most areas will receive 13 mm (0.50 of an inch) or less.
Muscat will be at greatest risk for thunderstorms and flash flooding into Wednesday evening. While it will not rain this entire time, any thunderstorm can produce downpours capable of causing flash flooding and travel delays.
Flooding will not be as widespread as earlier in the month, but any flash flood can be deadly. Water levels in normally dry rivers could quickly rise, even if it is not raining at that location. Residents are reminded never to drive over flooded roadways.
As the cold front responsible for producing these thunderstorms moves out of the region, dry weather will return. Rainfall is expected to become more isolated across U.A.E. on Wednesday before drying out on Thursday.
Rainfall will become more isolated across Oman on Thursday, ending the threat for flooding. Dry weather will prevail from Friday through the weekend.
