Expect the rest of the week to be a dusty, windy and hot mess in Qatar.

Starting today, local meteorologists are forecasting an increase in windspeed of up to 23 knots (43km/hour), thanks to the deepening of an Indian Monsoon front over the Gulf.

In a statement, the Qatar Meteorology Department has warned residents to expect winds to be particularly strong this afternoon, but decrease in intensity at night.

The windy conditions – which will be lead to dustier weather – are expected to last until the end of the week, the MET added.

Temperatures during this time will reach a high of 43C (109F) and a low of about 30C (86F).

As always, when it’s dusty outside, residents should take care to cover their mouths and noses to avoid inhaling harmful particles. Here’s a list of tips on staying healthy during dust storms.

Strange. This normally happens just after I’ve washed my car (which I have not done in two weeks).
