Muscat: This year winter in Oman will begin by December 1, the Public Authority for Civil Aviation's (PACA) MET directorate has said.
Speaking to the Times of Oman, a meteorologist explained, "Winter is expected to begin meteorologically on December 1. Astronomically, it will start on December 21.”
However, that doesn’t indicate a drop in temperature immediately. The official added, "When temperatures drop will depend on the motion of the sun. On December 21, the sun is expected to move from the equator to the North Pole," he added.
