The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) expects the weather to remain cloudy in the country, with the possibility of some light to medium rainfall during the next three days, beginning on Sunday, especially on the sea and the islands. The Centre explained that the current condition of the weather was a result of continuity of movement of clouds towards the country from the west due to the extension of surface low pressure accompanied by upper low pressure over most parts of the Arabian Peninsula.

The winds would be moderate to fresh southeasterly to northeasterly, especially over the sea, blowing dust and sand over exposed areas with an initial speed of 20–30 km/h, reaching 45km/h. The waves would be moderate becoming rough at times during the daytime in the Arabian Gulf, and moderate in Oman Sea, the NCM added.
