Muscat: The latest weather charts and analysis of the National Multi Hazards Early Warning Center indicate the continuity of upper air low-pressure system over the Arabian Sea causing advection of clouds with chances of rain occasionally thundershowers until Friday, July 3, over Governorates of South al Sharqiyah, North Al-Sharqiya, Al-Wusta, and Dhofar may result in the flow of wadies and local flash floods.
The Public Authority of Civil Defense and Ambulance (PACDA) has called for exercising caution during rains and flowing wadis.
The heaviest rainfall amounts will be concentrated over the governorates of South al Sharqiyah, Al Wusta, and Dhofar.
Heavy rain and thundershowers are expected to affect the mentioned governorates with rainfall amounts ranging from 35 to 80 mm for the next 24 hours associated with fresh to strong winds, flash floods, reduction in horizontal visibility, and rough sea conditions along the southeastern coasts (3 – 4 meters).
Even the Muscat governorate is likely to get sporadic rains, Oman Met said while the areas around Al Hajar mountains are likely to witness strong winds and hail.
