In its daily bulletin for Tuesday, the NCM said that the weather will be cloudy, with some convective rainy clouds over the eastern and northern parts of the country.

It also cautioned that light to moderate winds in general along with clouds could lead to “blowing dust” over the exposed areas.

The sea will be rough in the Arabian Gulf and moderate in the Oman Sea, the NCM added.
