Another round of downpours forecast for Qatar this weekend

Rain showers and possible thunderstorms are expected to move across Qatar tomorrow, picking up on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, local meteorologists have said.

While precipitation is usually welcome by residents here, the downpours will likely put a damper on several outdoor weekend activities, including the Qatar International Food Festival and Katara Beach Soccer events.

Speaking to Doha News, Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist for Al Jazeera English, said:
“We’re expecting a shower on Wednesday and some more persistent rain on Thursday afternoon and Friday, (which) looks quite heavy.” She added that thunder and lightning are both expected.
