The NCM also expected that the weather from Saturday to Tuesday would be clear to partly cloudy at times, with low clouds towering over the eastern coast in the morning and chance of some cumlus clouds in the east in the afternoon.

“The winds will be southeasterly to northeasterly, light to moderate, fresh at times, causing blowing dust, with a speed of 15 – 25 reaching up to 40 km/hr. The sea will be slight in the Arabian Gulf and in the Oman Sea,” the NCM added.
