For the first time in nearly a decade, Doha may see some rain showers in August. According to the Qatar Meteorology Department, cloud formations indicate that thunderstorms could be on the horizon for certain parts of the country tomorrow:
God Welling expected formation of local clouds with chance of rain maybe thundery at North and west part of Qatar by tomorrow afternoon— أرصاد قطر (@qatarmd)
If the precipitation, which would come during Qatar’s most humid month, hits Doha, it would be a bit of a Ramadan miracle. Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist at Al Jazeera English, said:
Last time it rained in #Doha in August was 2005. Here’s hoping we see some on Monday!— Steff Gaulter (@WeatherSteff)
Are you praying for rain? Thoughts?
