No direct impact of cyclone Chapala on UAE

Abu Dhabi, Oct 31 (IANS/WAM) Cyclone Chapala, a storm gathering in the centre of the Arabian Sea, may have no direct impact on the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS).

“Chapala may generate clouds in the south of the UAE as a result of a strong high pressure system on land and upper atmosphere extending from north-east Iran and Pakistan and east Caspian Sea. Accordingly, this will make it difficult for the tropical system to head towards the UAE,” the NCMS said in a statement.

Satellite images, weather numerical models and forecasts showed the tropical storm was moving towards southern coasts of Oman and Yemen and might reach the Gulf of Aden on November 2, the centre added.
