Video: first rains of winter in Dubai and Sharjah as rainfalls hit the area.

It's pouring like crazy, and people in the United Arab Emirates can't help but celebrate what they're calling "the first rains of winter."

Residents of Dubai have started posting footage of torrential downpours in various parts of the city, a welcome sight during the UAE's notoriously hot and humid summers.

From the Dubai World Trade Centre to Jumeirah and Karama, and even as far as Sharjah, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, and Umm Al Quwain, Akhbrna News has received many reports of rain.

Some pedestrians carried umbrellas, while others were content to simply pull out their smartphones.

Naturally, the excitement over the rains has spread to social media, where many have posted "You know you're in Dubai" jokes and videos of youngsters having a blast in the rainfall.
