After a brief respite from last week’s dusty weather, strong winds are expected to return to Qatar on Sunday, reaching up to 37 knots (69 km/hour) in different parts of the country.

In light of the conditions – which are expected to create a fresh round of sandstorms – the Qatar Meteorology Department has issued a high wind and seas warning from tomorrow, June 28 to Wednesday, July 1.

In a statement, the MET attributed the new weather front to the “deepening of the Indian monsoon over the country,” and forecast a dramatic drop in visibility due to the expected blowing of dust.

Previously, forecasters have said that windy, sandy weather is normal for this time of the year – much to the dismay of some residents who may be fasting or have just had their cars cleaned.

Temperatures during the next few days are expected to hit a high between 42C (108F) to 44C (111F).
