ADEC declares Wednesday as holiday for Abu Dhabi Schools
Schools in the emirate of Abu Dhabi will be closed on Wednesday, March 9, due to bad weather conditions, the Abu Dhabi Education Council said late on Tuesday night in a tweet.
School will be suspended for students, teaching staff and management of both public and private schools, the tweet said.
While various parts of the nation witnessed grey skies and heavy rain for the second day in a row, the Capital experienced thunderstorms on Tuesday. The wet weather, which came abruptly after a sunny weekend, was due to an extension of low pressure coming from southwestern UAE.
In the Capital, scattered rain and thick dark skies took over the city early Tuesday morning. The city woke up to light drizzles, which cleared towards mid morning.
In the afternoon, however, heavy showers hit the city and residents were seen running to seek shelter.
ADEC also tweeted about the holiday.
لسلامة الطلاب فقد تقرر تعليق الدوام لطلاب المدارس والهيئة التعليمية والإدارية للمدارس الحكومية والخاصة غدا الأربعاءوذلك بسبب الأحوال الجوية.
