The Qatar Met department has said there is a chance of scattered light rain, which may become thundery at times, in the country from this evening until tomorrow evening. Strong winds are also likely.
The weather office said in a report yesterday that the cloud cover (medium and high) is expected to increase over the country in the above-mentioned period due to the presence of an ‘upper-level low-pressure system’.
This will result in a possibility of scattered light rain with a ‘risk of thundery cells in some areas’, which will be accompanied by strong winds, especially offshore. Fresh to strong northwesterly winds are likely during this period while slight to blowing dust will bring down visibility to below 3km in some areas.
The sea state is expected to be unsuitable for marine activities, the Met department has said, urging people to be careful and follow latest updates through its official social media accounts.
Meantime, hot daytime conditions are again expected today and the temperature in Doha will range from 30C to 43C. Yesterday, the city saw a maximum temperature of 39C, while a high of 44C was recorded in Sheehaniya, Karana and Jumayliyah.
