Arabia Weather - During the past few days, the UAE was affected by a very strong rainy condition, accompanied by heavy rainfall and the occurrence of floods in many areas of the country. The situation also witnessed the occurrence of thunderstorms and heavy hailstones of large sizes.

Several scientific reasons helped make the rainy situation extreme in the UAE

The staff of the Weather Forecast Department at the Arab Weather Center explains the scientific reasons and weather conditions that accompanied the rainy situation in the UAE and made it a strong and exceptional situation.

First: Deepening the upper depression in an ideal way that serves the UAE in the first place.

Second: Large thermal differences between the upper and surface layers amounted to 41 degrees Celsius, which contributed to an increase in convection currents, which allowed the formation of huge thunderclouds carrying large amounts of rain.

Third: The formation of low surface pressure in the east of the Emirates increased the pull and flow of moist air towards the region.

Fourth: The influx of moisture and water vapor to record levels in the atmosphere reached up to a height of 12 km above the Earth’s surface, which stimulated the towering vertical construction of cumulonimbus thunderclouds, which contributed greatly to the formation of hailstones and their falling in large sizes.
