Dust storms and light showers have been forecast for Muscat and the northern parts of the Sultanate over the course of this week, according to a report issued by the Oman Meteorology Department.
According to the report, the Sultanate is expected to witness a trough of low-pressure with the possibility of cloud advection, which could result in scattered rains over the governorates of Musandam, North Al Batinah, South Al Batinah, Muscat and South Al Sharqiya.
Meanwhile, residents have also been warned that moderate to strong northeasterly winds are expected over the next 24 hours. This could result in dust storms. The sea is expected to be rough along the coastal areas of Musandam and the Oman Sea, with a maximum wave height ranging between 2.5 metres to three metres.
The Public Authority for Civil Aviation has urged fishermen and the general public to take precautions and follow weather bulletins to avoid any mishaps.
