The South-Eastern coast is in a cool mode due to the monsoon winds, but the Al Hajar Mountain range has been in the spotlight with clouds forming over parts of the governorates of Al Dakhiliyah, South Al Batinah, and North Al Sharqiyah, which brought about the rain with thunder, accompanied by active winds and hail.
“The next three days will continue to have this weather pattern,” said the weather forecaster at Oman Met Office, Civil Aviation Authority.
“The rain around Al Hajar Mountains will continue for three days. However, it will not extend up to the capital area,” he pointed out.
According to the weather expert, the coastal area is expected to experience clouds in the morning.
“However, the clouds will disappear as the sun rises by 10 am and reappear over the mountains as convective clouds,” he said.
There have also been thick Khareef (monsoon) clouds on the coasts of Dhofar Governorate and the adjacent mountains, with the possibility of more drizzle.
“The next few days, Khareef is expected to be better than the last couple of days as more drizzle is expected,” explained the weather forecaster.
The coastal areas are also expected to experience cooler temperatures as the Southeastern part is under the influence of monsoon wind, and Oman Sea Coast will also see better conditions compared to the last three days, according to the weather forecaster.
