Yep, you read that correctly. If you haven’t spent your January jet-setting, you’ll undoubtedly have been privy to the crazy weather that’s taken the UAE by storm (pun always intended).
Several wet and windy days have resulted in widespread flooding across the UAE's cities this 2020. Roads (and malls) were flooded and cars were written off, but surprisingly that wasn’t the last of it.
Turns out, it has rained so much in the UAE this year that the desert has actually turned into a…field! Like, there is legit green grass growing out of the sand, people!
A series of photos snapped and shared by Gulf News shows the Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah deserts with flora and fauna sprouting from the ground.
The National Center for Meteorology (NCM) also reported that this morning the lowest temperature-ever was recorded over the country; Jebel Jais Mountain was just 1.7 °C at 5am today.

Yes, people in the UAE rejoice when the heavens open and the temperature drops, but if all that ain’t a sign of global warming, we don’t know what is…
