Strong winds are expected during Monday also along with poor visibility in some places due to dusty conditions, the Qatar Met department has said in its forecast.

Offshore areas, too, are likely to see strong winds and high seas, according to the weather report.
On Saturday, the Met department had said fresh to strong northwesterly winds were expected to affect most parts of the country - at daytime - until tomorrow due to the extension of the “Indian monsoon low” over the region. Above-normal temperatures were also likely in Qatar during this period.
