The Qatar Meteorology Department on Saturday said the Al Wasmi season will start in the country on Sunday (October 16).

Al Wasmi season is the local term for rain season, during which the country witnesses winds, storms and rainfall for 52 days. “This season is named so because it coincides with rainfall that helps certain local plants to grow such as geranium,” the QMD said in a statement.

During the Al Wasmi season, the clouds move from west to east and an indication of good rainfall is also observed.

Climate records indicate that the maximum temperature in the season will gradually decrease in Doha and is set to reach less than 35 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, the minimum temperature will fall to about 20 degrees Celsius with an overall mild temperature during daytime and relatively cool temperature at night, accompanied with northwesterly winds.
