The Civil Aviation Authority’s Directorate General of Meteorology has issued a weather warning on a low-pressure system over the Arabian Sea, which started affecting parts of Oman on Monday, assessing its potential to continue for a few days.

A statement issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said, ‘An analysis by the National Multi-Hazards Early Warning Centre shows a trough extending from the Arabian Sea towards the sultanate starting on Monday implying chances of cloud advection with isolated rain and occasional thundershowers over the governorates of Dhofar, Al Wusta and South Sharqiyah.’

There are chances of cloud development along the Al Hajar Mountains and adjoining areas with thundershowers. The state of the sea will be rough along the Arabian Sea with waves reaching maximum three to four metres of height. The Sea of Oman will be moderate with waves of maximum height of 1.5m to 2.5m.
