Amid rising temperatures, parts of Oman including some in the Ad Dhakhiliyah region have experienced light to heavy showers, bringing welcome respite to people living in these areas.
“Al Hamra has been witnessing rain for the last 10 days, and the temperature has fallen to nearly 15 degrees Celsius,” one resident was quoted as saying.
More rains have been predicted in the coming days according to weather forecast modules given to the Directorate General of Meteorology and Civil Aviation. Motorists have been asked to take care when driving, especially when crossing overflowing wadis, which may result in accidents.
According to the forecast, cloudy skies are expected along the coastal areas of Dhofar and in the adjoining mountains.
However, it is very unlikely that rains will touch Muscat, meaning residents will have to endure the heat a little longer. “It is possible, but North and South Al Batinah may expect more rain than Muscat. However, there is a very low chance of rain in Muscat,” an official at the Directorate General of Meteorology and Civil Aviation told a local newspaper.
