Following the first cold snap of the season, and then a bit of warmer weather, Qatar is expected to see temperatures fall even further this week, to a maximum of 18C (64F) to 21C (70F), the Qatar Meteorology Department has said.

The cooler weather coincides with the annual winter solstice, which this year falls on Saturday, Dec. 21, and marks the longest night in the Northern Hemisphere.

That means tomorrow is the shortest day of the year. It will be ushered in with strong winds and minimum temperatures of 11C (52F), the MET said. It also warned of choppy sea conditions:

And two days from now, rain is in the forecast, the MET said in a statement:

“Rain is expected from Sunday 22-12-2013 evening till the end of the week, with a higher probability on Monday and Tuesday.”

But precipitation is not likely to hit Doha, Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist for Al Jazeera English, told Doha News. In a tweet, she added:

How are you handling the cooler weather these days? Thoughts?
