Dubai, Dec 6: Dubai experienced rain and thunderstorms on Saturday, with the Dubai Meteorological Office predicting unstable weather in the coming days.

In Umm Suquiem and Al Quoz, residents reported seeing a hail storm.

Rain also caused floods in parts of Jumeirah, Al Wasl Road and areas in and around the Dubai Autodrome, forcing Saturday's racing event to be cancelled.

Giorgio Alessio, duty forecaster at the Dubai Meteorological Office, said the weather would remain changeable for a few days, with a chance of heavy thunder showers in coastal areas, such as Jebel Ali and Jumeirah in Dubai.

"The weather will stay very unsettled until Sunday, with isolated rain showers and the chance of more rain evening. From Sunday it will settle down and most of the rain will be gone. Next week will be nice and settled," he said.
