The relative humidity is also expected to increase by night and Monday morning, especially over western regions.

The conditions on the Arabian Gulf and Oman Sea are expected to be relatively calm.

The winds are expected to blow dust and sand into the air. Drivers should be careful on the road as the dust is expected to hinder horizontal visibility. Those who suffer from allergies should also take precautions when going outside.

Similar conditions are expected to continue over the rest of the week.

Recently a representative from the NCM told Gulf News that this weather pattern is usually observed during the end of August and the beginning of September as summer is about to end.

The temperatures will also gradually decrease as we move towards the end of summer.
