Windy weather in Qatar to persist, but another harsh sandstorm ‘unlikely’

After surviving this week’s sudden sandstorm, widely believed to be the worst Qatar has seen in years, residents should be able to expect some relief this weekend, forecasters have said.

According to Steff Gaulter, senior meteorologist for Al Jazeera English, it will be breezy today, with a maximum temperature of 29C (84F).

Conditions should be less windy tomorrow, but a change in the wind direction is expected to cause dustier conditions and hotter temps – up to 33C (91F) – on Saturday, she added.

Wednesday’s late-night sandstorm and subsequent aftermath took many Qatar residents by surprise, sickening hundreds, leaving a dusty mess inside of homes and malls, and causing chaos on the roads and at the airport.
