Hurricanes or floods are unlikely to hit the UAE, and weather conditions are expected to remain normal, aside from clouds and light rain across the country.

There were reports of mild showers in some parts of Sharjah, Fujairah and the capital in the morning and late on Saturday. Dust storms were also reported by residents from Dubai in the afternoon.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) earlier on Sunday rebuffed the rumours attributed to the US Navy about the existence of hurricanes and floods across the country, saying they were merely an ‘exaggeration’.

The NCMS said any news traded via social networking sites about this case should be referred to the centre. The centre also emphasised the country was currently under the influence of unstable weather conditions leading to a different intensity of rain over scattered parts of the country periodically.

“The centre is warning (against visiting the) Oman and Arabian Gulf sea and (has advised people to) stay away from the running valleys, adding that precautions must be taken in case of rain on high roads,” the NCMS said in a statement.
