A drop in temperature is expected in Doha and eastern coastal areas today due to the prevalence of easterly winds, the Qatar Met department has said.
However, the mercury level will continue to be above the mid-40C level in the central and western parts of the country, according to information available on the weather office’s social media platforms.
Yesterday, the highest temperature recorded in the country was 48C in Turayna, followed by 47C in Al Khor, Sheehaniya, Batna and Karana. In the capital, a highest temperature of 44C was recorded in the Doha airport area.
The Met department had earlier forecast that the temperature was expected to reach 48C in the southern and central areas yesterday.
The forecast for inshore areas today says it will be hazy in some places at first, followed by a hot day with slight dust and humid conditions.
Hazy to misty conditions are also likely in some areas by night.
Offshore areas, too, are expected to see hazy to misty conditions in some places at times along with some clouds.
A maximum temperature of 41C has been forecast in Doha today.
