Expect rains in northern parts

By Lakshmi Kothaneth — MUSCAT: Feb 26 – Light rains were witnessed in Al Khodh, Ghala, Qurum and Ruwi on Sunday night. The sky will be clear to partly cloudy in the northern parts of Oman on Monday. Isolated rains are expected in the northern parts of Oman, according to the Met Office. There is also a likelihood of rain in the areas around Al Hajar mountains. “Expect drizzles and windy conditions as the northwesterly winds will kill any moisture in the air,” said the weather expert at Public Authority for Civil Aviation. “We can expect a few more troughs, which is considered normal in winter,” said the weather man. He added, “The rains on Monday will be more like Sunday because the northwesterly wind has begun to blow yesterday.”
