It’s going to be a chilly, windy weekend in Qatar, local forecasters have warned.

Residents who plan to spend time outdoors should take care, as windspeeds are expected to reach up to an astonishing 40 knots (74km/hour).

Citing the extension of a Siberian high-pressure system, the Qatar Meteorology Department has advised all residents to avoid sea activities over the next few days.

Below-normal temps

Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to be 3 to 6C lower than usual through Sunday, the MET said in a statement.

Today, temperatures are expected to fall to as low as 9C (48F) in Wakrah, Mesaieed and Abu Samra near the Saudi border, according to the MET.

And in Doha, it will be a brisk 11C (52F) to 15C (59F) today.

However, the maximum temperature should climb to 19C (66C) tomorrow.

That said, visibility is expected to drop all weekend due to strong winds and dusty conditions.

Mixed reactions

Qatar residents have expressed mixed reactions to the winter weather, with some lamenting it while others saying they hope it never ends.
