DOHA: The weather would be cloudy today with chances of scattered rains, the weather bureau said yesterday.

The wind direction inland would be northwesterly to northeasterly, and offshore the wind direction would be northwesterly. Wind speed inland is forecast to be between five and 15 knots, while at sea the speed may increase up to 15 and 18 knots, particularly in the north.

“We are expecting scattered rains tomorrow. The weather is likely to be partly cloudy to cloudy, similar to what has been experienced since this morning,” a forecaster told The Peninsula last evening.

Day temperatures are likely to range between 18 degrees Celsius (in Abu Samra) to 21 degrees in Doha. Places like Al Khor and Ruwais are expected to record the second highest temperature at 20 degrees.
