Oman Weather: More rain expected

Muscat: Rain in some parts of Oman will bring down temperatures this week, according to the Oman Meteorology Department.
“Latest weather analysis shows that the Sultanate may be affected by a trough of low pressure with chances of light rain over northern governorates from Wednesday,” an official of the Oman Meteorology Department said.
The low pressure is likely to bring some rain in northern governorates, including Muscat, from Wednesday. “This will continue for three to four days,” the official added.
“Strong northeasterly winds will bring down the temperature. The state of the sea is expected to be rough along the Sea of Oman,” the official said.
Last week, heavy rain fell in several areas of Oman, leading to massive flooding, overflowing wadis, flights disruption and closing down of Muscat Festival and some schools.
Apart from Muscat, heavy to moderate rainfall was also recorded in the governorates of Musandam, Muscat, Al Buraimi, Al Dhahirah, North and South Al Batinah, North and South Al Sharqiyah and Al Dakhliah.
In its outlook for the next two days, the Met Department said there are chances of rainfall in the Musandam governorate and over Oman Sea. “Mainly clear skies (will be there) over the rest of the Sultanate with chances of fog over Oman Sea coastal areas and governorates of Dhofar, Al Wusta and South Al Sharqiya,” the Oman Meteorology Department said.
