Temperatures in Qatar are expected to climb steadily this week, reaching the mid-to-high 30Cs by Saturday, the Qatar Meteorology Department has said.
The south and southwest parts of the country could even see the thermometer hit 40C (104F), the MET added in a statement.
There will be a slight breeze over the weekend, and light rains may sprinkle over the northern part of Qatar by Saturday evening, it said.
A MET forecaster told Doha News that temperatures will fall after the weekend, but it will still be hot.
A “large temperature contrast” between the days and nights are expected to continue throughout the month, the MET said.
As spring turns into summer here, Qatar residents have been trying to cope with the weather in different ways.
