Windy conditions are likely to continue until Monday evening before subsiding for a short spell and returning on Wednesday, the Qatar Met department has said.

As per the weather forecast, the maximum temperature will rise to the mid-40C mark in the central parts of Qatar on Tuesday before dropping to the upper-30s in most areas on Wednesday and Thursday.
Different parts of Qatar have been experiencing windy and dusty conditions over the past few days.
In a report on Sunday, the Met department said there will be a gradual decrease in the strength of northwesterly winds on Monday though the warning for continued strong winds over some inshore and offshore areas will continue until the evening.
Fresh to strong winds are expected again on Wednesday as an extension of the Indian monsoon low is likely to affect Qatar from then until Friday.
During this period, fresh to strong northwesterly winds are expected to blow at speeds of 15-25 knots that may go up to 30 knots at times, resulting in blowing dust and poor visibility – which may drop to 2km or less in some areas.
