Thundershowers are expected in parts of the country today along with strong winds, the Qatar Met department has said. The weather office has also issued a marine warning for thundery rain, windy conditions and high seas today. Rain was detected at a number of places around the country yesterday, including Doha, and the wet spell is likely to continue today. Last Wednesday, the Met department had said there were chances of rain around the country until the end of this week due to a spell of ‘unsettled weather’. On its part, the Traffic Department advised people to exercise caution and drive safely in rainy conditions. Today’s detailed forecast says cloudy conditions are expected both inshore and offshore along with scattered rain, which may be thundery in some places at times. The wind speed may go up to 25 knots in inshore areas during thundery rain, and 30 knots offshore. The temperature in Doha is expected to range from 19-24C today; yesterday, it was 22-27C.
