The rain is over for now but the country may see another spell of unstable weather by the coming weekend, the Qatar Met department has said.
On Monday, low visibility has been forecast in the early hours of the day in some inshore areas and late at night in offshore areas due to fog and mist, according to the weather office.
The country has experienced a couple of cold spells this month as well as two rainy spells, with the showers being accompanied by thunder at times in some places. The skies started clearing Sunday after sporadic rain was reported from Doha and other places since late on Saturday.
Data issued by the Met department on social media showed that Turayna (9mm) and Mesaieed (7.1mm) in the south had received the highest rainfall between Friday and Sunday morning.
Meanwhile, the department also tweeted that “another unstable weather situation - with chances of rain” – is expected to affect Qatar by the coming weekend.
The detailed forecast for Monday says hazy to misty/foggy conditions are expected in some places at first, followed by mild daytime conditions. Visibility may drop to 2km or lower in some areas in the early hours of the day.
Offshore areas, too, are likely to see hazy to misty/foggy conditions by late at night.
The weather office said relative humidity was expected to rise last night with a chance of misty-foggy patches over some areas late at night and early in the morning.
A minimum temperature of 13C is likely in Abu Samra on Monday, while in Doha (airport area) it will be 16C. The maximum, on the other hand, will range from 23C to 26C.
On Sunday, a minimum temperature of 13C was recorded in Turayna and 17C in the Doha airport area. The maximum ranged from 20C to 24C.
