In a series of tweets, the National Centre for Metreology and seismology (NCMS) said Sweehan, Dubai-Al Ain road, Jebel Ali, norther Ras Al Khaimah and internal northern areas of the country received light showers.

The Met official ruled out the possibility of active thunder and lightning associated with fresh wind and rough sea on Oman Sea. It added the weather will remain partly cloudy with a chance of rain over some areas.

According to a tweet by @trafficdxb, an accident has been reported on Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road before National Paints towards Dubai causing extra congestion and delays to morning rush hour traffic.
