Weather charts indicate cloud advection over the Sultanate associated with isolated rain.



Latest satellite pictures show formation of tropical low pressure area in the east of the Arabian Sea, around 450 km away from Ras Madrakah with surface wind-speed of 15 to 20 knots, according to a statement issued by the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) on Monday.

As a result of this, coastal areas of Dhofar, Al Wusta and South Sharqiayah will get isolated rains from Tuesday for the next three days.

Weather charts indicate cloud advection over the Sultanate associated with isolated rain. The effect of southwesterly wind will sustain along the Arabian Sea coast, with maximum waves height ranging between 3 to 4 metres.

Public Authority for Civil Aviation has urged people to follow the timely weather advisories published by the National Multi-Hazard Early Warning Centre.

Temperatures for Muscat and Salalah are expected to be in the mid-forties, but in other areas such as Nizwa, Ibri and Rustaq, it could be very hot.
