The Qatar Met department has issued a special weather forecast summary for the Eid al-Fitr holiday period.
During this period, the weather is expected to be hot during the daytime with some clouds, the report states.
Temperatures are likely to be around their normal range with the maximum ranging between the mid-30Cs and early-40Cs in most areas. However, the ‘feels like’ temperature is expected to be higher due to high relative humidity, especially along the coastal areas.
The Met department has urged people to avoid direct sunlight as well as to follow latest updates through its official social media accounts.
The winds, meanwhile, are likely to be mostly easterly to southeasterly, ranging in speed from 5-15 knots and reaching a high of 18 knots at times, causing a gradual rise in relative humidity with a chance of mist in some areas during dawn on Monday, Tuesday and on Wednesday.
This will be accompanied by a drop in visibility to below 2km at times.
The sea state is expected to be suitable for marine activities with the wave height ranging from 1-3ft, rising to 5ft occasionally in the northern areas.
Today’s detailed forecast says it will be misty at first, followed by a hot day with slight dust in some places as well as clouds at times. Scattered clouds, followed by misty conditions in some places by late tonight, are likely offshore.
The maximum temperature is expected to be 40C in Al Khor on Monday, 39C in Doha and Dukhan, 38C in Wakrah and Mesaieed, and 37C in Abu Samra.
Sunday, a maximum of 45C was recorded in the Qatar University area, followed by 44C in Abu Hamour and Turayna, 43C in Doha (airport area), Al Khor, Sheehaniyah, Batna, Mesaieed and Jumayliyah, and 42C in the Hamad International Airport area and elsewhere.
