The Meteorological Department at the National Centre of Meteorology and seismology (NCMS) today carried out tests to induce artificial rains. The NCMS used planes to sprinkle cloud seeding salts in the moist clouds heading towards Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al Ain. The monitoring stations already registered light to medium rainfalls in different areas of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The Centre is planning to repeat the tests tomorrow. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
