Muscat: Heavy rains have been reported in northern Oman, said weather enthusiasts.
“Wadis are overflowing in Suwaiq, Samail, Al Awabi, Ouf, Shatan, and other areas,” Bader Ali Al Baddaei, administrator of www.rthmc.net, a local web-based forum that discusses weather in Oman, told the Times of Oman.
The Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) has forecast rain in Oman for the next three days starting from Monday afternoon due to a deep upper air trough.
