Dust storm to continue for 3 days, rain likely in Muscat, Oman

Dust Storm Alert

MUSCAT Dust storm is likely to continue for the next three days across the Sultanate and there are chances of isolated rain along Muscat coast in the next two days, according to the Met office.
 
The dust storm combined with soaring temperature led to the calling off of the fifth stage of the Tour of Oman on Saturday. Initially it was decided to shorten the 151-km stage from Al Sawadi Beach to the Ministry of Housing to 100 km. But with the dust storm and temperature going beyond 40 degrees Celsius in some places, organisers decided to call off the stages.
 
The rising dust storm over the next few days would affect visibility, said a Met official who added that the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) had cautioned people to keep windows closed and also stay indoors and step out only in case of urgency. Officials also suggested that people cover their faces, preferable with a muzzle. 
 
The dust storm would lead to a rise in temperature and on Saturday, Muscat recorded a maximum temperature of 36 degree Celsius. People were also advised to avoid driving during a dust storm. 
 
The skies would be partly cloudy over the northern parts over the next two days with chances of isolated rain, occasional thundershowers, over governorate of Musandam, the coastal areas of Sea of Oman and Al Hajar mountain ranges.
 
The sea would be rough along Musandam and the Sea of Oman coasts with maximum wave height of 3 metres.
