Thunderstorms likely during weekend: QMD

Most areas of the country are likely to witness moderate to heavy rain during the weekend, Qatar Meteorology Department has forecast. “Unsettled weather conditions are expected to continue affecting the country during the weekend due to extension of a low pressure system with a chance of scattered rain, thundery at times, reaching the peak between Friday evening and Saturday evening,” the QMD said. The conditions will become favourable for moderate to heavy rain in most areas of the country accompanied with sudden strong wind gusts causing dust to rise and low visibility in some areas, it added. Weather conditions are expected to stabilise gradually on Sunday morning. The QMD has urged the public to take extra care, especially during thunderstorms, and avoid going to sea. (TNN)
