The mercury is forecast to touch 47C at Mesaieed and Wakrah and 46C in Doha today, the Met Office said yesterday. These levels are 3-5C higher than the annual normal ones. The temperature is likely to return to its annual normal on Thursday, reaching 40-42C. Fresh wind will continue in Qatar until Thursday. The wind speed will increase by noon and reach its peak tomorrow and Thursday and it will be between 10 and 20 knots, reaching 25 knots by noon. On Thursday, the wind will become northwesterly-northeasterly due to the Indian monsoon low pressure located over the UAE.  Because of this, blowing dust is expected to affect the country, leading to reduced horizontal visibility to 3km or less at places.
