The next few days are going to be alternatively unbearably hot and then uncomfortably dusty, forecasters in Qatar have warned.
Temperatures are expected to reach highs in the mid-40s today and tomorrow, according to the Qatar Meteorology Department (MET).

But a high pressure front is expected to move over the country tomorrow night and stick around until Sunday, dropping temperatures to the mid-30s.
The change in weather also means however that there will be strong winds of up to 35 knots (65km/hour). Visibility is also expected to drop to below 2km due to blowing dust, the MET said in a statement.
Forecasters have urged residents “to be cautious” during this time and also to avoid going out to sea.
Does this affect your weekend plans? Thoughts?
