It looks like rain was not the only weather phenomenon to hit the UAE this week.
Several social media users took to their online platforms to share videos of lightning shows and hail captured across the UAE over the last couple of days.
The videos showed streaks of lightning 'racing' across the skies and turning them purple. This is not a new phenomenon, as purple-tinted lightning is said to be caused by high levels of precipitation.
Lightning shows and storms lit up the night skies in Fujairah and Al Ain, while other videos showed hail falling on Al Shiwayb Road - Al Madam, Abu Dhabi.
