Weather reports suggests a drastic switch in temperature as spring makes its way into the country. Temperatures are expected to soar to 35-36°C from the current 26-30°C over the next seven days, along with harsh winds that cause dust and sand. This will also reduce visibility and cause thunder and scattered rainfall, in certain pockets.
That said, clouds from the West will cause a dip in temperature on Saturday and Sunday. Dr Ahmed Habib, NCM meteorologist and expert on cloud seeding said that residents can expect intermittent rains in scattered pockets.
