The country will be affected by an extension of the surface low pressure, over most areas of the Arab Peninsula and Arabian Gulf, associated with low pressure in the upper air causing instability condition starting by today evening.

"Convective clouds will form Eastward by the afternoon, and clouds will increase gradually toward the West especially over the sea and islands during the night with a probability of rainfall," the weather department said.
Winds will blow with a speed of 20 to 30, reaching 45 Km/hr at over the sea causing blowing dust over exposed areas.
