Northwesterly windy conditions locally called 'AlBawarih' are expected to return from Saturday (June 13) until the end of next week "due to the deepening of the Indian monsoon low with a high-pressure system over the northern Arabian Peninsula", the Qatar Met department has said.
'AlBawarih' is known for increasing wind speeds during the daytime and decreasing speeds at night, according to the weather office.
The windy conditions are expected to influence most areas of the country, marked by fresh to strong winds ranging in speed from 15-25 knots with gusts exceeding 35 knots at times in some areas, the department has said in a report.
This, in turn, will cause blowing dust and poor visibility of 2km or less in some areas at times. In addition, marine warnings for strong winds and high seas will be in effect with the wave height ranging from 4-8ft, reaching 12ft in some areas occasionally, the report states.
The maximum temperature is expected to range between 34C and 46C during the daytime and the minimum between 25C and 30C at night across the country with a noticeable drop in relative humidity.
The Met department has urged everyone to be careful, avoid all marine activities and follow the latest updates through its official social media accounts.
