"The clouds can be spotted on large parts of the northern governorates of the Sultanate with opportunities of sporadic rain," PACA tweeted.

PACA had earlier said that rain was expected in Oman for a few days, starting from Saturday.

“The latest weather analysis in the National Multi Hazard early warning center shows that the Sultanate will be affected by a trough of low pressure starting from Saturday, February 24, 2018 to the next few days,” a PACA advisory read.

They said that showers were likely in the northern parts of the Sultanate such as Musandam, with rain making its way south later.

“Isolated rain, occasionally thundershower associated with wind and hail are expected over the governorate of Musandam and gradually, may extend to governorates of north and south Al Batinah, Muscat, Al Buraimi, Al Dhahira, Al Dhakhlia, north Al Sharqiyah and south Al Sharqiyah,” PACA added.
