Strong winds and high seas are expected in offshore areas in the early hours on Tuesday, the Qatar Met department has said.
The wind speed will be 14-23 knots at first before decreasing to 8-18 knots later, according to the weather report.
Slightly dusty conditions and some clouds are also likely in offshore areas, where the sea level may rise to 8ft early Tuesday.
The detailed forecast also says mild daytime conditions are expected in inshore areas Tuesday, along with some clouds and slight dust.
Strong winds and poor visibility due to dust were reported from a number of places in the country on Monday. For instance, a post on the Met department’s Twitter page said visibility had dropped below 2km in Abu Samra and Al Khor due to blowing dust as wind gusts exceeded 25 knots.
An offshore warning was also in place due to windy conditions and rough seas. The weather office, through a post on social media Monday morning, reminded that people should avoid sea activities as the wave height ranged from 10-12ft while the wind speed had gone up to 34 knots.
The marine warning was expected to be cancelled by Tuesday noon, according to the Met department.
Meanwhile, a minimum temperature of 20C is likely on Tuesday in Abu Samra, Wakrah and Mesaieed, while in Doha it will be 23C. The maximum, on the other hand, will be 31C in Doha and other places.
