MET: I assure you Qatar will see rain, possible thunderstorms today

Following a week of wet weather forecasts, Qatar’s Meteorology Department (MET) has once again warned residents that they may see possible thunderstorms and strong winds today.

The MET had been forecasting rain all week, but so far Qatar has only seen light drizzles in different parts of the country.

However, speaking to the Peninsula about the current outlook, forecaster Abdullah Al Mannai said:

“For today… I assure you, there are chances of scattered rains and all over. The rains will first lash central parts of the country and then spread.”

According to the MET, clouds are already moving over the country:

The overcast appearance of the sky also appears to indicate that we may actually see some rain today.

Earlier this week, Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist at Al Jazeera English, told Doha News that the precipitation could be the last rain we see before a long dry summer.

As far as temperatures go, after a week of 40C and above, the winds today are expected to cool the high down to 36C (97F), and the low to 29C (84F).

Will rain affect your plans for the rest of the weekend? Thoughts?

I can assure you it has rained. I have washed my car twice this week, and both times it has been ‘speckled’ in the mornings! Best way to assure rain-wash your car!
