The sudden change in weather has softened the Ramadhan mood in the Sultanate of Oman, as most of the wilayats witnessed cloudy weather and rain that brought down the temperature and recharged the wadis (valleys).


Some governorates witnessed moderate rains even as thick clouds are hovering in the affected areas.


The wilayat of Al Rustaq had a large share of recent rains. It rained mostly in the mountainous areas resulting in the overflow of the wadis and scenes of waterfalls in some areas.


Al Hawqayn and Al Khanadiq witnessed a large number of visitors after the rains.


This area has many popular tourist sites due to its geological nature. The water here is distinguished by its turquoise colour and this area provides the opportunity for its visitors to camp and practice swimming.


Many photography enthusiasts love to capture natural beauty when it rains in this area.


The National Multi Hazard Early Warning Centre at the Public Authority for Civil Aviation has issued a report that suggests depression in the Sultanate of Oman's airspace.


Weather is likely to be partly cloudy to cloudy, with the possibility of rain of varying intensity, sometimes thundery, accompanied by active winds and hail until next Thursday.


In this atmosphere, joy appears on the faces of the residents of this beautiful village, as everyone here is looking forward to a fertile agricultural harvest season.


"We are happy when the rain comes. In recent years, the wilayat has witnessed many rains that have contributed to soil fertility and an increase in agricultural activities. The agricultural season will begin in less than a month, and we expect that the local markets will witness a diverse range of agricultural products,” a local farmer said.


Rustaq's main agricultural products are dates, mangoes, lemons, onions and garlic.
