The NCM also said that relative humidity is expected to increase by night and Saturday morning, especially over coastal and internal areas, causing fog and mist formation.

The sea will be very rough to rough by afternoon in the Arabian Gulf and moderate to rough in Oman Sea.

The NCM warned: “ Fresh Northwesterly winds with rough to very rough sea, the wave is 2-3 feet onshore, 7-11 feet offshore until 9.00 am”, today.
