In general, the weather will be partly cloudy and hazy with a drop in temperatures.
Temperatures will vary between 14 degrees celsius to 26 degrees in the coastal areas, between 12 degrees and 29 degrees in the internal areas and touch lows of 7 degrees in the mountains, with highs reaching 20 degrees.
Strong northwesterly winds will also cause “blowing dust and sand” over the sea and exposed areas, with wind speeds predicted to reach up to 55km/h in the coastal regions.
The NCM also warned that the seas will be rough in the Arabian Gulf and Oman Sea.
