Weather alerts for thunder, sandstorms, floods issued as heavy rains hit Gulf

Asma - | UAE

Weather conditions in Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Qatar are currently unstable, prompting warnings from weather authorities across the region.

Weather authorities in several Gulf countries have issued warnings as the region experiences unpredictable weather conditions. The crisis and disaster management center in the Makkah region of Saudi Arabia has alerted residents to unstable weather conditions, advising caution for motorists on highways and beachgoers. Concerns about flooding and water accumulation in certain areas have prompted authorities to advise residents to steer clear of streams.

The National Centre of Meteorology has issued a red alert for torrential rains, accompanied by high-speed winds, hail, reduced horizontal visibility, and thunderstorms. Oman's Meteorology Center has issued advisories for thunderstorms in various parts of the country, including Khasab Port, Khasab Airport, Bukha, Madha, Sohar Majis, Saham, Yanqual, Al Amerat, Rustaq, and Ibri. Additionally, residents are cautioned about moderate to rough sea conditions, with wave heights ranging from 1.5 to 3.5 meters along the coasts of Musandam and the Sea of Oman. Thunderclouds and strong winds are prevalent in the region, leading to increased dust and decreased visibility in certain areas of Oman.

Bahrain is anticipating rainy weather from this evening until Monday, with the country's weather authority warning residents of thunderstorms and gusty winds. Meanwhile, in Qatar, where excitement is building for the Asian Cup final at Lusail Stadium, there is a possibility of rain and light winds. These weather fluctuations across Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Qatar highlight the importance of staying informed and prepared for changing weather conditions, especially given the potential risks associated with thunderstorms, high winds, and reduced visibility.
