Oman Meteorology has warned of heavy rains over the Sultanate and has asked people to exercise caution.

The Public Authority of Civil Aviation (PACA) said in a weather alert on the Al Rahma trough, "Due to expected heavy thunderstorms, rainfall amounts ranging between 30mm and 70mm is expected. This will be associated with fresh downdraft winds, hail, flow in some Wadis and poor visibility over parts of Dhofar, Al Wusta and south Al Sharqiyah."

The Authority cautioned everyone to take precautions during the rains and Wadi flow and to check visibility and sea state before sailing.

PACA also urged people to follow the instructions of the Supreme Committee for dealing with Covid-19 and to stay at home unless it is necessary to venture out.
