Strong winds, dusty conditions and low visibility are expected in parts of the country on Monday, the Qatar Met department has said.
Offshore areas, too, are likely to see strong winds and high seas by midday, according to the weather report.
Northwesterly-northeasterly winds are expected to blow at 8-18 knots in inshore areas, reaching a high of 22 knots in some places at times. In offshore areas, the wind speed may go up to 25 knots by midday.
The mercury level, which has been hovering around the early/mid-40C levels over the past few days in several areas, is likely to come down to the upper-30C levels starting from this afternoon as a result of the northwesterly winds, the Met department tweeted on Sunday.
