It’s going to be hot in Doha over the next few days, with temperatures expected to rise by an average of 6C to reach a high of 32C (90F), the Qatar Meteorology Department (MET) has said.

The heat will be accompanied by windy, dusty conditions, but after Friday is forecast to abate considerably, the MET added.

Over the weekend, the country will transition away from the hotter weather as clouds move in and chances of rain showers increase on Saturday.

In a statement, the MET explained that a high pressure front and northwesterly winds will contribute to the change in weather:

“Cold weather will affect the country and there will be significant drop in the temperature between the values 6 – 10 degree where the maximum temperature will be between 20 – 23C (68F to 73F) in the city of Doha and the minimum will be 12 – 15C (54F to 59F) and may be lower in some areas.”

So to sum it up, no sweaters are needed for the rest of this week, but you may want to hold on to one during the beginning of next week.

Thoughts?

It was really hot in Doha yesterday – I even saw two dogs fighting over a tree.

It was really hot in Doha yesterday – apparently a dairy farmer went to check on his jerseys, and found that they’d all turned into sweaters.

Ok, I’m no fashion expert but the lady in that photo has no clue how to accessorize 😛
Btw, isn’t meteorology somewhat of a blasphemy? It’s like claiming you know what will happen…the culture and values are in danger. What next? Mixed toilets?

She’s philipino for sure and she is hiding from the sun in fear it may darken her skin .. South east Asians in general prefer to have cream white skin as opposed to tanned or sun brown skin .. It’s a social and status symbol…

Why do you believe it is racist? Didn’t intend for it to be..

If she was hot she would not be wearing blue jeans with a cotton suit jacket… I saw this with all the Philipino staff in my old office… They explained why… They also said darker skin means your from the south or something

Ha, shows me fashion sense – I thought that she did a very good job of matching both her shoes to her bag and her jacket. Damn it, there goes my future designing clothes for GQ.

Hey Shabina, how about some consistency here? That was a personal attack. To more important issues, why was I a ‘jerk’ as you put it? I complimented her on matching her bag and her shoes. What is jerkish about that?

I’m a jerk because I think that she did a good job accessorizing? I find your opinion to be odd.

What gave her away? The knock-off bag? Or the umbrella? When i first saw the umbrella here in broad daylight i thought: Man, these guys have some pretty posh brownish ladies around. I heard it explained to me and I must say you put it politely compared to the version I’ve received regarding skin tone “status”.

Talk to a dozen Filipinos and you think you know all already. Nothing about what you said makes sense.

You couldn’t even spell ‘Filipinos’ properly. There goes respect out the window.

Still, your logic is problematic. If I were to follow your line of thought, then why are the women here all wrapped up in black abaya even at the height of summer?

There’s some truth to that, but your tone is judgemental and too conclusive. Filipinos normally use umbrella on a hot sunny day- yes, even men- plainly because IT’S BURNING HOT; for personal comfort and health. Nothing so surprising about that. It’s normal. I don’t understand why people make such a big deal about it.

The only one making a big deal out of it is you. We were just sharing what we’ve learned. I’ve also asked my friends about it as it seemed odd. And the answer I got was: “If we get tanned we look to much like the Indians”. Exact words, I might add. If you want I can get you their numbers and they can confirm it for you. I’m about sick and tired of everyone “getting offended” and mentioning it like that constitutes an argument. (Hitchens reference).

Very true… The region i hail from has a very strange definition of beauty… According to them only a fair person is beautiful.. They don’t consider people with whitish or skin beautiful..

You’re not a fashion expert, and yet you criticize the lady in that pic. The black blazer is ok with jeans.(putting on a black blazer with rugged jeans makes the attire a “little” appealing and formal. It’s an ordinary view among fashion icons. Yellow sandal matched with blue umbrella makes it the proper combination of secondary color. Purple & yellow makes a good combination too. So if you’re telling the lady doesn’t know how to accessorize, I think you’re the one who doesn’t know.Regarding the use of umbrella, it’s a common view when you visit the Philippines. That is to protect against radiation, protect from being burned, and protect herself from male m___c here.

Calm down…jeez. If you think that’s great and stylish go for it. Allow me to think it’s flea market fashion. Maybe our ladies and the thousands of designers are just not up to speed with the trends in ind. area.

Let’s try this again since my first post disappeared..

John Snow is not Ed Stark’s love child. He is the legitimate son of late king Robert and Ed stark’s sister. They were married in secret and out of fear of the lancisters killing john snow when he was young Ed said he was his… So given the new King at Kings landing is of incest and not Roberts actual son.. The true heir to the throne is no other than John Snow… Go team snow
