A Facebook post by the Qatar Meteorological Department announced that after roughly 5 months, winter is officially done and over in Qatar and that the first days of spring have already kicked off, thus the warmer climate the people of Qatar have been experiencing.

"Winter is over and the spring equinox starts and it's the first days of spring in Qatar."

Once the onset of the spring season is announced, a relative change in the weather conditions of a country is expected to take place, usually on a warmer note.

According to a Qatar Tribune (QT) article, the vernal equinox and the four astronomical seasons are the indicator of climatic changes.

QT also mentioned that the length of the day and night is approximately the same across the world yesterday (March 20) as the sun was exactly vertical on the earth’s equator on that day.

Expert Astronomer at the Qatar Calendar House Dr Beshir Marzouk said:

“On Wednesday, the length of day and night will be approximately equal over southern and northern hemispheres including Qatar, where the length of the day and night will be 12 hours and 7 minutes and 11 hours and 53 minutes respectively.”

In Qatar's case, March and April are the best months to visit the country whether as a tourist or as sa resident as these are the spring months. Air warms up from 27 °C (81 °F) at March to 31 °C (88 °F) at April.

The length of the winter season this year was 88 days, while the length of the spring season will be 93 days.

It can be remembered that the National Tourism Council announced November 1, 2018 as the beginning of the winter season in Qatar, just a few days after they inaugurated the Al Enna winter camp at Sealine Beach.
