Temperatures will dip significantly across the UAE over the weekend, dropping to below zero degrees on the mountains, according to the UAE Met department.

In a tweet, the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) said that the country will be affected by a deep low pressure associated with cold air mass which will be accompanied instable conditions during the period.

"Cloud amounts will increase gradually over scattered areas on Thursday and Friday. They are likely to be associated with some rainfall especially at the coastal, islands and northern areas, and maybe some snowfall over high mountains. 

“Temperatures will significantly drop starting from Thursday and continue drop on Friday, with temperature may fall below zero degree Celsius over high mountains,” it added.

The weather department also said that it will be partly cloudy at times over some areas in the country, with rainfall at some places, leading to “significant fall in temperature”.
