The Department of Meteorology said in a report Thursday that weather maps show a gradual increase in cloud cover from Friday. The weather from Friday evening through Tuesday, January 18, 2022 will be partly cloudy to cloudy with occasional rain showers of varying intensities, which may at times turn into thunderstorms.
Winds will be southeast-southwest at speeds between 14 and 24 KT during the day, with gusts in excess of 30 KT over some areas at times raising dust and reducing horizontal visibility to less than 3km at times. The wind is expected to turn northwest early Monday 1/17/2022 and persist for several days through the end of next week, with a moderate to fresh speed becoming strong during the day on Tuesday and Wednesday 18-19 /1/ 2022.
Sea conditions are not suitable for all sea activities as wave heights are expected to exceed 10 feet during the period of weather variability.
The north-west winds will also be accompanied by a noticeable drop in temperature with a greater feeling of chills, especially during the night and early morning hours, where maximum temperatures of between 16 and 22 °C and minimum temperatures of between 8 and 15 °C are expected, even cooler in the southern and outer areas. It is worth noting that this period coincides with the entry into (Shabbat) season, which is considered the coldest winter season locally, and starts from mid-January and lasts about 26 days. The Qatar Meteorological Department urges everyone to exercise caution and avoid all marine activities during this time.
