Meteorologists are forecasting windy, dusty and possibly damp days ahead for residents as Qatar’s stormy season winds down.

The “unstable weather” will run from Monday to Wednesday and is expected to include strong gusts, low visibility due to dust and thunderstorms, the Qatar Meteorology Department said.

In a statement, it attributed the conditions to the end of the Al Sarrayat season, adding that an increase in the humidity due to changing pressure levels and a shift in the wind direction would spur cloud formation.

Qatar hasn’t seen much rain in the past few months, and the dry weather served to worsen a series of sandstorms that hammered the country in March and April, causing school closures, flight delays and health problems among some residents.

In terms of temperatures, expect the maximum this week to be in the low 40Cs (~104F), and the minimum to fall to 27C (81F) during the evenings.
