DOHA: Scattered rains might lash Doha and other parts of the country later this evening, the weather bureau said in its forecast yesterday.

Chances of rain, particularly in the northern areas, would likely continue until tomorrow noon.

Low pressure building in the north of the Arabian Peninsula might deepen and extend and increase chances of scattered rains here, the bureau said.

“There are chances of scattered rains in Doha by the evening,” the bureau said in a detailed forecast. In the northern areas, it might rain earlier in the day with thunder.

Since the wind direction today until tomorrow evening would likely be southeasterly (with the speed being moderate), the bureau said humidity levels might rise today and last until early tomorrow evening.

A fresh cold spell would likely come back by tomorrow evening when the wind direction changes to northwesterly which blows from the colder regions of Europe. It could be windy beginning tomorrow evening with wind speed reaching 30 knots at places. The sea could be rough in the north as a result.

Mercury levels would likely fall at night to between 10 and 13 degrees C from Sunday, while day temperatures are expected to vary between 15 and 19 degrees, the bureau added.
