Weather update: Oman to witness thundershowers over weekend

Muscat: Northern parts of Oman will continue to witness heavy cloud cover, according to the Meteorology Department of the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA).

In an online statement, it said, “Formations of high and medium clouds in the northern parts of the country continues.”

According to PACA: While the beginning of the weekend will only see isolated showers, it is then expected to intensify into thundershowers, and even hailstones in some parts of the country. The latest weather charts show clouds across the northern and central parts of the country, ranging from Musandam in the north to Al Wusta in the central region.

“Starting from Friday, there is a chance that the weather will be cloudy, with cloudy skies over most of the Sultanate,” an official from PACA said.

“There is a chance of isolated rains, which will eventually lead to some thundershowers. These thundershowers will mostly affect the wadis, so those who are crossing the wadis must be careful because the water level will be high.
