The humidity level soared to above 85% in some areas last evening, the Qatar Met department tweeted, noting that the conditions were favourable for fog formation from late at night until early in the morning.
Wednesday’s forecast says poor visibility is expected in some places by early in the morning due to misty to foggy conditions. There is also a similar warning for low visibility in offshore areas, in the early hours of the day and then late at night.
This is in line with an earlier forecast issued by the department on Monday, noting that relative humidity is expected to increase in the coming days and there is a chance of misty to foggy conditions in some areas early in the morning. This, in turn, will result in poor visibility. The conditions are expected to continue until the weekend.
Also, mostly easterly to northeasterly light/moderate winds are likely during this period.
The detailed forecast for Wednesday says following misty to foggy conditions in some places by early in the morning, it will become relatively hot during the day and some clouds are also expected at times. It will be humid by night. Visibility may drop to 2km or less in some places in the early hours of the day.
Similarly, misty to foggy conditions are likely in offshore areas, along with some clouds, at first and by late at night.
The Met department has urged people to be cautious in view of the prevailing conditions and follow latest updates through its official social media accounts.
The maximum temperature is expected to be 43C Wednesday in Dukhan, 39C in Wakrah, Mesaieed and Abu Samra, 38C in Doha and Al Khor, and 36C in Ruwais.
Tuesday, a maximum of 44C was recorded in Shehaimiya, followed by 43C in Dukhan, 42C in Jumayliyah, 41C in Batna and Karana, and 40C in Sheehaniya, Turayna and Ghuwairiyah, while in Doha it was 36C.
