The Qatar Met department has advised people to remain cautious, avoid activities in the sea and follow latest official weather updates and warnings in view of the weather fluctuations expected over the next few days.

The country is likely to experience unstable weather conditions, including rain, from Thursday evening until December 27 (Sunday).

This is due to the passage of a low-pressure system in the upper levels of the atmosphere during this period, according to the weather office.

Easterly to southeasterly winds are expected to blow on Thursday, leading to an increase in humidity as the skies will become partly cloudy to cloudy gradually. There is also a chance of isolated light to moderate rain.

The rainfall is expected to reach its peak from early on Friday until Saturday morning with a forecast for moderate to heavy rain over most areas of the country with a chance of thundershowers, the weather report states.

On Saturday evening, cloudy skies are expected to continue with a chance of isolated light to moderate rain. The weather will gradually stabilise on Sunday though there is a chance of isolated light rain.

Northwesterly moderate to fresh winds, which may become strong at times, are expected to affect the country from Friday evening until Sunday morning, leading to high waves and a noticeable drop in temperature, the Met department has said.

The maximum temperature in Doha is expected to range between 19C and 22C and the minimum between 14C and 17C. Lower temperatures are likely in open areas.
