According to the NCM, it will rain in eastern and southern areas of the country today. Moderate southeasterly to northeasterly winds will prevail and will cause blowing dust.
It will again be cloudy tomorrow and rain is expected is southern areas. Convective clouds formation will continue to bring showers over southern areas on Monday and rain is expected to also hit the eastern areas on Tuesday. The seas, however, will be slight to moderate.
