Gulf Times - - QATAR -

Thun­der­show­ers are ex­pected in the coun­try to­day, along with strong winds in some places, the Qatar Met depart­ment has said.

Off­shore ar­eas, too, are likely to ex­pe­ri­ence thun­dery rain, windy con­di­tions and high seas to­day, ac­cord­ing to the weather re­port.

The wind speed will be 1020 knots off­shore, go­ing up to 40 knots dur­ing thun­dery rain, while the sea level may rise to 15’.

In­shore, the wind speed will be 5-15 knots, reach­ing a high of 30 knots dur­ing thun­der­show­ers.

The de­tailed fore­cast for both in­shore and off­shore ar­eas says it will be cloudy to­day and there is a chance of scat­tered rain, which may turn thun­dery at times.

The Met depart­ment yes­ter­day also tweeted that the chance of scat­tered rain of vari­able in­ten­sity con­tin­ues to­day, which may be­come thun­dery at times, es­pe­cially in the north­ern ar­eas.

“Marine warn­ings re­main in ef­fect. Please be care­ful and fol­low lat­est up­dates through our official so­cial me­dia ac­counts,” it added.

The weather of­fice had re­cently said in a re­port that a “state of at­mo­spheric in­sta­bil­ity” was ex­pected to af­fect the coun­try due to an “ex­ten­sion of a low-pressure” sys­tem from Fri­day un­til Tues­day.

Parts of the coun­try, es­pe­cially in the north, have re­ceived scat­tered rain over the past cou­ple of days along with some off­shore ar­eas.

Mean­while, the min­i­mum and max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures ex­pected in the coun­try to­day are 23° Cel­sius in Ruwais and Dukhan, and 32°C in Wakrah and Me­saieed, re­spec­tively, while Doha will see tem­per­a­tures in the range of 25°C and 31°C.
