The Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) said the weather was unstable and advised people to stay away from the sea and take care if venturing out in the rain and wind. The centre also expects a dip in temperatures and conditions are set to continue until at least Wednesday.

The change in weather has been caused by a surface low pressure area coming from eastern Saudi Arabia.  The sea is stormy with around 1.8-metre to 2.7-metre high waves in the Arabian Gulf and could become even rougher, said the national weather bureau. Conditions were said to be similar in the Sea of Oman.

The NCMS said the weather was partly cloudy to cloudy in general and hazy in some areas with winds blowing at speeds of 28km/h to 40 km/h. More info
