It’s going to be particularly hot and windy over the next few days thanks to a northwesterly weather front that is moving across Qatar, local forecasters have said.

Expect strong winds of up to 35 knots (65km/hour) to sweep across the country from Sunday to Tuesday, decreasing visibility to 2km or less in some areas, the Qatar Meteorology Department (MET) said in a statement.

Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to fall from their searing high of 48C (118F) yesterday to a still very hot 43C (109F) today in and around Doha, the MET added.

Qatar’s mid-summer day work ban doesn’t take effect until June 15, and earlier this week, meteorologists urged people working outdoors to avoid direct sunlight.

They also advised wearing light clothing and staying hydrated.
