Light rain fell over different parts of the country on Sunday. The rain started falling at 3pm, due to the effect of the extension of a weak western surface air depression with the extension of another weak western air depression in the upper layers of the atmosphere, resulting in a state of weather instability, according to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM).
