The Qatar Meteorology Department (QMD) said the prevailing weather condition is expected to continue for a few more days, until the beginning of next week.

According to Ministry of Interior (MoI) tweets, there was a heavy traffic jam on the February 22 Road owing to an accident involving several vehicles. Traffic patrols are on the site, it said.
