Strong winds, low visibility forecast for Qatar


Windy Qatar

The Qatar Meteorology Department is urging caution for residents as it forecasts furnace-like conditions over the next few days.

Doha is expected to be especially windy today, with gusts reaching speeds as high as 25 knots (46km/h), causing visibility to drop due to the blowing of sand and dust. There is also a high sea warning throughout Friday:

Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to remain in the 40s while the sun is up, reaching a high of 45C (113F). However, the mercury should fall to 36C (97F) by nighttime, the MET said on Twitter.

For those seeking heat relief, heading out of Doha might be a good idea. According to the Peninsula:

“Places like Mesaieed and Al Wakra would likely witness huge variations between day and night temperatures as the maximum temperature forecast is 47 degrees Celsius and the minimum 28. Al Ruwais would witness the least variation in day and night temperatures: The maximum being 40 degrees and the minimum 34…

Dukhan and Abu Samra will be cooler, with the maximum temperature being 38 degrees and the minimum 29.”

Weather.com states that winds will die down by Saturday, but temperatures will climb to nearly 47C (117F).

Will the weather affect your weekend plans? Thoughts?
