In addition to the drop in temperature, strong winds are expected to blow in on Wednesday, which will kick up dust and drop horizontal visibility to 2km or less, the MET added.
There will also be a chance of light rain showers through Friday, with temps expecting to go up after Saturday.
It's about to get chilly! Winds will pick up in Doha today and the temperature will drop steadily over the next few days. Friday's max 17C
