Muscat: Parts of Oman’s interior experienced heavy rainfall late Friday afternoon, according to a local weather expert.
Rustaq, Samail and Al-Khaburah all received significant portions of rain, which was characterised by overflowing wadis and partially flooded villages.
“Nearly all of the Batinah region has received rain today,” said Badar Al Baddaei, the owner of a local weather monitoring website, Rathth.net. “All of Oman will receive rain this weekend, and that includes both Muscat and Salalah.”
The Sultanate’s Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) had issued a notice about the same on Thursday afternoon, alerting residents to expect rain over the weekend.
In the wake of this announcement, Thursday evening in Muscat was characterised by continual winds. Rain is expected to arrive in the capital today evening.
