Scattered rain is expected throughout Qatar today, including in the capital, according to local meteorologists.
The precipitation is expected to reach Doha by the afternoon, and there is a small chance of a few more outbreaks overnight, Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist for Al Jazeera English, told Doha News.
According to the Qatar Meteorology Department, rain has already been spotted in the north of the country today:

And sprinkles could be observed in Doha around 9am this morning.
However, the likelihood of rain tomorrow on National Day is very small, Gaulter said.
According to weather.com, temperatures will range from a high of 25C (77F) to a low of 18C (64F) today.
Things will be a bit cooler tomorrow, with a high of 23C (73F) and a low of 16C (60F) – nice weather for a parade.
