Arabia Weather - The rainy situation that affected the UAE witnessed exceptional weather conditions, the most prominent of which was heavy rainfall at times, leading to a lack of horizontal visibility. The rain was also accompanied by intense lightning and hailstones.

 

But what was striking was the size of the hailstones that fell during the impact of the weather in some areas, which were of large and unprecedented sizes. There is no doubt that this matter had reasons that we will mention as follows:

 

  • Nimbocumulus clouds form and grow to a high height of up to 12 km above the Earth's surface.
  • The strength of the updrafts was sufficient to carry the hailstones for a longer period, which meant that ice crystals formed around them and their size increased.
  • The presence of water vapor at a high density, which led to the water vapor continuing to freeze around the hailstones and doubling their size.
