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:

The unusual weather is already affecting other countries in the Gulf, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, which saw flooding over the weekend.

Are you praying for rain? Thoughts?
