In the United Arab Emirates, it was possible to artificially induce rain in the 50-degree heat. This is reported by the local weather forecast portal Storm Center.
In several areas of the United Arab Emirates, where daytime temperatures now reach fifty degrees Celsius, heavy rains have been falling since Wednesday. According to forecasters, precipitation is observed north of Khatta in the Hajar mountain range, as well as in the areas of Huwaylat, Kalba Road and Wadi al-Khilyu. In addition, rains were recorded in the area of the city of Al Ain in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. It should be noted that earlier there was a heat of 47°C.

Usually, precipitation is not observed in the Emirates in summer. However, the current rains are not an anomaly, but the results of a full-scale experiment in the country to artificially change the weather.
Rain technologies consist of special experiments to “seeding” clouds. The UAE conducted them together with scientists from the British University of Reading. Drones launched electrical discharges into clouds without the use of chemical compounds.
