Strong winds are again expected across the country on Monday along with poor visibility due to dusty conditions, the Qatar Met department has said.
The weather office has also issued a warning for strong winds and high seas in offshore areas today.
Windy and dusty conditions, as well as poor visibility, were reported from a number of places on Sunday, even as the temperature dropped from the levels recorded on Saturday.
On Monday, the wind speed may reach a high of 35 knots in some inshore as well as offshore areas. The dusty conditions will lead to a drop in visibility to 1km or less in some places at times.
The forecast for inshore areas also says it will be hot during the day, while offshore areas are likely to see slight dust at times. The sea level may rise to 13ft during the day.
The Met department had earlier forecast that the effect of northwesterly winds on the country would continue until Wednesday, with fresh to strong winds blowing across Qatar during this period. These conditions are likely to reach their peak until tomorrow, resulting in blowing dust and low visibility at many places.
While the mercury level had soared to 48C on Saturday, a maximum temperature of 43C was recorded yesterday in Batna, Turayna and Messaied, 42C in the Abu Hamour, Qatar University, Doha airport and Sheehaniya areas and 41C in Al Khor, Karana and other places.
The maximum temperature today is expected to be 42C in Doha, Messaied and Wakrah, and 40C in Al Khor.
