Rain in August
The rain was attributed to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), which is where different trade winds collide, sometimes forming thunderstorms.

Speaking to Doha News, the Director of the Qatar Meteorology Department (MET) said that rain is not that common in August.
But it isn’t unheard of either, Abdulla Al Mannai added.
While cloudy weather with light rain is in the forecast this week, the precipitation won’t affect temperatures.
That means you can still expect highs to hit the low 40s and lows to drop to around 33C at night.
Have you seen any rain yet? Thoughts?
